Start 2021 with peace education

At the 1999 Hague Peace Conference (the largest international peace conference in history), participants from around the world agreed that to help in the work of building cultures of peace, both formal and informal education needed to include peace skill development. The Global Campaign for Peace Education was born. The campaign's goals are:

  1. 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.
  2. To promote the education of all teachers to teach for peace.

CFSC is pleased to endorse the Global Campaign for Peace Education. If so led, you can too: https://www.peace-ed-campaign.org/endorse

As part of our contribution to peace education, CFSC plans to once again offer a five-week-long interactive workshop series online in 2021.

Participants will discuss, practice, and learn from each other about topics from our book Are We Done Fighting?: prejudice, power, conflict, effective communication skills, belief, polarization, inner peace, and more.
