Kyiv, Ukraine—More than 400 pupils from 40 schools attended the fourth Junior Ambassadors for Peace Congress on the 2017 International Day of Peace.

The congress was held on September 21 at the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War under the theme "Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All."
