A Smile as a Start
for world-wide Peace

The goal, the past and the future of the World’s Greatest Smile

The goal of World’s Greatest Smile is to provide as much peace as possible to as many people as possible as fast as possible. Worldwide. That’s it.

We are working on this goal in many different ways.

We give people from all over the world the possibility to state together that there is willingness for an intelligent and peaceful international communication on the WGS-Day.

Additional we provide a place were people can learn about each other to enhance international understanding and teamwork, the interactive online WGS-School.

And on this web site you can now find some of the letters we wrote to influential persons, more resources for peaceful communication including language ressources and useful links to international knowledge.
Besides we worked on the development of a
workshop and games for children and adults, so they can learn teamwork and friendly communication in a playful way.

We are going to intensify our work on the World’s Greatest Smile in many ways.
Read our
WGS-Blog to stay tuned!

Why a Smile...?
Smiling is without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Therefore Smiling is
international and an intelligent start of communication.
And so we use as a symbol one of the least common denominators of communication - a smile.
