The news was reportedly announced at a John Lennon Educational Tour Bus stop outside New York’s City Hall, where Ono was joined by children and city officials.
In an attempt to set a Guinness World Record, Ono wants to get 6,000 to 10,000 people involved in creating the human peace sign. All ages are welcome for the free event, and Ono’s Imagine Peace will accept donations for the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, which is a non-profit mobile facility that allows students to get audio and video recording experience.
Interested participants can sign up on-site by Noon EST, or in advance here. An aerial photograph showing the human peace sign will take place at 12:30 p.m. EST.
Soon after the announcement was made, Ono tweeted, encouraging followers to “just start thinking PEACE.”
