Education Partnerships for a Culture of Peace

Peace education is a participatory process which changes our way of thinking and promotes learning for peace and justice.

The Hague Appeal for Peace Global Campaign for Peace Education has two goals. First, to build public awareness and political support for the introduction of peace education into all spheres of education, including non-formal education, in all schools throughout the world. Second, to promote the education of all teachers to teach for peace.

The Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace has one major goal related to peace education - putting peace education on the Canadian agenda, with the goal of getting it integrated into Canadian curricula of all schools before the end of this Decade.
