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, it was agreed that we will not focus specifically on any one of the four peace education content areas. The intention was to kick off a multi-year theme on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). You can find out more about what we’ve been doing in the DEI space here.
The content created by our volunteers for previous content years of focus are below.
