A School Day of Nonviolence and Peace (DENIP)

This Day was the initiative of the pedagogue and thinker Llorenç Vidal in 1964 and is known as "Dia Escolar de la No-violència i la Pau" (DENIP) in Catalan. Its goal is to integrate the values of harmony, tolerance, solidarity, respect for the rights of man, nonviolence and peace within education.

Scholastic institutions are free to choose pedagogical approaches of their choice. The date of January 30 was chosen to mark the death of Gandhi.

A certain number of European and American websites promote this date.
It seems to be celebrated everywhere in the Spanish - and Portuguese - speaking world (Spain, Brazil...).
