Peace Education is based on our five Peace Actions:

  • Seek peace within yourself and others
  • Reach out in service
  • Protect the environment
  • Respect diversity
  • Be a responsible citizen of the world

History & Purpose

In 1998, World Citizen, Inc. conducted a survey of Peace Site schools. The following needs were most often mentioned:

  • To keep Peace Sites active beyond the initial dedication ceremony
  • To support Peace Sites in creating and sustaining a culture of peace and non-violence in their communities, schools, and buildings

 World Citizen is your resource to help keep your Peace Site alive and energized

From the ongoing evaluation and assessments, we have received a clear message that what we offer is critically needed and of value.
The purpose of our Peace Education Program is the direct result of our work with teachers who identified the following as their needs as peace educators
  • Create professional development opportunities to network
  • Exchange ideas and resources
  • Build a supportive community of educators who foster a culture of peace in their communities, classrooms and buildings
