The International Tree of Peace (Slovak: Strom pokoja, Russian: Дерево мира, German: Der Friedensbaum) is an international initiative that originated in Slovakia. The project, created on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, was initiated by landscape architect Marek Sobola from Žilina, Slovakia. The main goal of the project is to promote a message of peace by planting a Tree of Peace on every continent. The project is claimed to aim at planting trees around the globe to draw awareness to the global environmental issue and to enhance the solidarity of the humankind. The initiative, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, is implemented by Slovak NGO Servare et Manere which has a Special Consultative Status within the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (UN ECOSOC). The project's motto is "Let's make love the lifeblood of this world" (Slovak: Urobme láskavosť miazgou tohto sveta). The World Map of Peace also World Peace Map, abbreviated to the Map of Peace, unites all individual Trees of Peace plantings into one global whole.
