Peace Education is based on our five Peace Actions:
 
bullet Seek peace within yourself and others
bullet Reach out in service
Protect the environment
Respect diversity
Be a responsible citizen of the world
History and Purpose
In 1998, World Citizen conducted a survey of Peace Sites. The following needs were most often mentioned:
bullet To keep Peace Sites active beyond the initial dedication ceremony
bullet To support Peace Sites in creating and sustaining a culture of peace and non-violence in home, school, and community.
From the ongoing evaluation and assessments, we 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 and other community leaders who identified the following as needs for a just and peaceful world.
bullet Create professional development opportunities to network
bullet Exchange ideas and resources
Build a supportive community of educators who foster a culture of peace in homes and communities
How Peace Ed Training Can Benefit You
