The Purpose of Peace Education

The purpose of incorporating peace education into the curriculum at primary and secondary school level is to raise the awareness of peace as a strong ideal for children to aspire to. We wish to better the social environment in the nation’s schools.

We wish to motivate the pupils to take responsibility of their own behaviour and actions; to handle conflict resolution and make good sustainable choices in their everyday environment that adds to a peaceful coexistence. This is a prerequisite for a good learning process.

Bettering the social relations and accepted behaviours in schools can be achieved by giving the WE MAKE PEACE campaign time and importance. Our goal is to eventually integrate the subject of peace, human rights and conflict resolution into the curriculum to be on a par with multiplication, grammar and science.
