Drawing on ideas, perspectives, and experiences from diverse contexts, this course seeks to provide peace education practitioners with a holistic and critical understanding of the concepts and approaches used in peace education. Essentially, the course explores approaches towards the development of a culture of peace as embodied in the UNESCO Programme of Peace which encompasses the specific themes for the formation of the values of peace, conflict resolution, and respect for human rights. The course will also assist the participants in acquiring skills in developing and implementing peace- oriented curricula in the work that they do for peacebuilding and conflict transformation.

The course welcomes formal and non-formal education teachers, community workers, and leaders of civil society organizations, government and religious leaders, military officers, youth leaders and any individual involved in peacebuilding.
