Peace Education Day About Us

Peace Education Day

A joint project of the UNESCO Center for Peace, Spanish Federation of UNESCO Associations and Clubs, Pathways to Peace, The Prem Rawat Foundation, the National Peace Academy, Unity Foundation, PeaceChannel.com and other groups in a newly formed Peace Education Network, which is actively committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The goal of this conference is, “To assemble a global network of peace educators, and establish a United Nations Peace Education Day which recognizes that peace building skills, strategies and structures are foundational to all other humanitarian endeavors.”

Purpose

  • To assemble a global network of peace educators.
  • To launch a campaign for an official UN Peace Education Day.
  • To demonstrate the positive impact of peace education upon the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Campaign : United Nations Peace Education Day

The United Nations has declared 2021 as the International Year for Peace and Trust. What better time to launch a campaign for a United Nations International Peace Education Day! The United Nations has established more than 150 international days for different humanitarian themes. However, there is no day dedicated specifically to the theme of peace education. Because peace education is central to the United Nations central mission, it certainly deserves a special day for public awareness -– a day to promote peace education throughout the world.
