ACTIVE PEACE EDUCATION
Helping children learn how to achieve peace on three levels: inner peace, peace between individuals, and peace between countries and communities
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.
