What is Peace Education?

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) defines peace education as the process of promoting the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values needed to bring about behavior change that will enable children, youth, and adults to prevent conflict and violence, both overt and structural; to resolve conflict peacefully; and to create the conditions conducive to peace, whether at an interpersonal, intergroup, national or international level. Examples of peace education programs are found at PeaceJam, Little Friends for Peace, and peace clubs. Peace First also maintains a digital activity center stocked with peace education curricula and activities.
