Peace education is a way of learning about issues that are seen to be the cause of social injustice, conflict and war. In line with our principles, we have four areas of peace education content:
The purpose behind our peace education is to provide us all with the attitudes, skills and knowledge we need to be agents of change, both locally and globally – to become active global citizens.
You can find activities for each of our four peace education content areas here.
Until 2021, CISV International would put a spotlight on one of our four peace education content areas. For 2021 and beyond, it was agreed that we will not focus specifically on one, but instead encourage the incorporation of all. We encourage you to use these resources to include age-appropriate content in any CISV programmes you run.
The content created by our volunteers for previous content years of focus are below.
