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.

I believe that there is a lot complimentary between the work (and challenges) of Futurists (working to build a better world) and Peacebuilders (working to build a more peaceful world). I think we can learn a lot from each other, and work together. This is a new section linking Peace and the Future.
INTRODUCTION TO PEACE STUDIES - Ken Blanchard, noted professor and author of the One Minute Manager and Situational Leadership series of training materials, suggests giving students the 'final exam' questions at the start of the course and then teaching how to arrive at the answers - his formula for win/win learning.

Peace Curricula and Classroom Resources
UNESCO (1994) International practical guide on the implementation of the Recommendation concerning education for international understanding, co-operation and peace and education relating to human rights and fundamental freedoms [including Appendix 1 summary of UNESCO (1974) Recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding, Co-operation and Peace and Education relating to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms approved and agreed by your Government]

A “CANADIAN PEACE INSTITUTE” - This piece is intended to respond to
the question, "What would an ideal Canadian Peace Institute look like if we
had the opportunity and freedom to do what we want?" It is
intended to challenge others to put their suggestions on the table, generate
discussion and work towards a best case model for the classroom and institution.
If annually every Canadian just donated $1.00 to building peace then it would create an annual fund of approximately $30,000,000 - imagine the possibilities!
