Peace Factory France

Peace Factory France
In 2008, the original Peace Factory was adapted to the French context in cooperation with the Ligue de l'Enseignement and the Dutch designers of the Stichting Vredeseducatie (Peace Education Foundation).

In November 2008, the Fabrique de la Paix was inaugurated at the Salon Européen de l’Éducation in Paris, the annual meeting place for partners and stakeholders in the educational field, where it welcomed more than 2,500 visitors. Since then, it tours all over France, throughout the network of the 33,000 local associations of the tour coordinator, La Ligue de l’Enseignement. In November 2010, the Peace Factory was presented at the Salon Européen de l’Éducation in Paris, where it was visited by Mrs Jeanette Bougrab, French Secretary of State for Youth and Community Life. Around 15,000 children visited the exhibition in 2010 in France.

Feedback from participants confirms the strong impact and benefits of the project; both young people and adults find the exhibition a stimulating way to deal with topical issues and situations that arise in everyday life.

The Fabrique de la Paix has received the support of Fondation Hippocrène.
