Sustainable Peace Education Project
The Sustainable Peace Education Project consists of a strategy that works towards an enduring peace sustained by promoting a culture of peace initiated at the most fundamental societal levels. The Project promotes peace education in elementary schools & universities within known conflict areas that are stable & no longer engaged in active violence; utilizing a general, broad curriculum easily adaptable to time, place, & demographic following the successful model used by American Red Cross to disseminate its Exploring Humanitarian Law curricula.
The Sustainable Peace Education Project trains the native trainers to teach conflict resolution who will adapt the curriculum to the specific cultural needs of the target country. Not only does it teach grades 1-14, but the trained college students will perpetuate the training and make it sustainable. The mediator skill set used is that defined by Mediators Beyond Borders. This project is innovative because, unlike other similar projects, it does not target adults or scholars, but targets the next generation of global citizens, those that live in post conflict zones and those that, due to the forces of globalization, must be global citizens regardless of choice.
