ACTIVE PEACE EDUCATION

Supporting schools and families who are helping children to live more peaceful lives

Peace education activities promote the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will help people either to prevent the occurrence of conflict, resolve conflicts peacefully, or create social conditions conducive to peace. Core values of nonviolence and social justice are central to peace education.

Active Peace Education is an initiative of Malvern Quakers that offers courses to local schools, peace-making being a subject very close to Quaker hearts. Peace making provides us with the attitudes, skills and knowledge to become agents of change, locally and globally.

GET IN TOUCH

Would you like to be part of this exciting project? In order to widen our scope, we need more volunteers. We are looking for people who have some experience of living/working with children and can spare half a day in school each week in term time. We offer a training programme, including shadowing, access to a DBS for free, out of pocket expenses.


If you share our commitment to peace education and fun and want to be involved, or simply to find out more, please contact us.
