Living together harmoniously in Europe

Peace Education

Peace Education
With the Foundation’s Peace Education program, we wish to encourage children, young people and adults to become critical and responsible agents of peace within their families, schools, social networks and communities.

The Evens Foundation believes that one of the ultimate goals of education is to find ways to live well together, respecting our differences and still being able to build a world in commun. We are convinced that a constructive attitude towards conflict – seeing it as an opportunity rather than a problem – is crucial so as to further a culture of peace in our increasingly diverse society.

The Peace Education program thus initiates and supports educational projects and organizations that promote the management of interpersonal and intergroup conflicts in a positive way.

Our work includes: fund research related to the topic; initiate innovative methodologies and test them through pilot projects; support the exchange of inspiring practices; facilitate networking among EU-based organizations active in the field, and support organizations in their efforts to convince policymakers of the importance of conflict management in education.
