Possibilities of Peace Education Event in May 2021

Are you a teacher, youth worker, young adult, volunteer, parent/carer interested in peace education? Would you like to meet people from across Europe and beyond, share practice and ways to strengthen the call for peace education?

The Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA) and Quaker Peace and Social Witness (QPSW) invite you to their conference The Possibilities of Peace Education: Evidence and Opportunities, which will take place online in the afternoons of 20-21-22 May 2021.

The aim of the conference is to explore how education can sow the seeds of sustainable peace and heal divisions in post-conflict settings, drawing inspiration from a long Quaker tradition of peace education work. We will also discuss how Peace Education could become mainstreamed in EU and national policies at a time of increased polarisation.

Further information is available on the provisional programme.
QCEA will send the Zoom link closer to the conference date.
Make sure to RSVP by April 30 if you are interested in participating. Do not hesitate to contact Pamela Nzabampema at QCEA pamela.nzabampema@qcea.org if you have any questions or need any support. More details on the project are available at this link.
