Peace Education on the Move

Peace Education on the Move
In the school year 2014/2015, teachers in schools all around Europe exchanged visits with each other to share their experience of and insights into peace education in schools.

Through the Peace Education On The Move project, the Foundation sought to detect, recognize and disseminate good practices in the field of conflict management in education. We identified 18 primary/elementary schools and their teachers – from Belgium, Poland, France, Finland, Luxembourg, Sweden, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary and Germany – that have integrated and consistently implement peace education principles in their school policy and functioning, with particular focus on positive conflict management. The core of the project consisted of two-week teacher exchanges on the peace education practices in the schools. Each school was both host and guest. Every school was invited to send two of their educational staff to another school for one week. Each school received two people to get to know their school and projects related to peace education. All the participants were invited to attend the Conflict Matters conference. There was a great appetite to find out about each other’s experiences and the changes implemented as a result of the exchanges, and enthusiasm about the next steps
