A poem for peace


In October 2023, a new competition was organized by the French Poetry Academy, the International Montessori Association, the World Union of Catholic Educators and the World Organization for Early Childhood Education (OMEP), NGO partners of UNESCO. The competition is sponsored by the Spring of Poets (Le printemps des poètes, event in French).

Poetry, universal and free, transcends established discourses. Today more than ever, it has its place in a world of crisis where the fight for culture and peace are one and the same.
