  • Bringing global peace demands a more holistic approach as well as infusing peace education  in the minds of children, youth and learners across the world at an early age. With a global peace curriculum which is created and pushed forward and advanced by all Governments around the world, students and young people will learn the tools needed to prevent conflicts and advance peace education and peaceful co-existence in the minds of young people. Peace will be instilled in their minds as they go on to adulthood or as they grow to embody leadership responsibilities in their countries. By targeting the minds of young people through peace education,  we are decisively paving the way for peace makers and peace activists in all works of life and every society who will contribute to a just and peaceful world.  

Explain your idea

Working with educational leaders, governments, UN institutions and in all continents around the world to create a working peace curriculum suitable for the varied educational levels, we are putting peace not just at the center of discuss but also at tje heart of all humanity. With peace education as a compulsory subject in schools, it becomes a global investment that puts priorities on peace in lieu of wars and ventures into reawakening a new realization for the importance of pursuing peace in the world.

Who Benefits?

By incorporating peace in all schools across countries and the world starting from primary schools to high schools or secondary schools and colleges, the notion and knowledge will be practically used by learners to benifit all communities. Direct beneficiaries are students across the communities and the world and indirect beneficiaries are all who will experience a safer world through the ideas of peace that will be put into practice and carried through generations by the students snd learners.

How is your idea unique?

For many years peace education has been floating in the air and students of higher learning in select institutions have gained insight into its studies. However my idea is unique in many ways. Firstly the notion of making peace education accessible in all countries and schools with a single curriculum used by all schools around the world is unique. Secondly starting it from early education to all school qges will provide a greater foundation for tackling all the challenges the world faces towards overcoming acts that leads to conflict and violence. By involving government leaders, the UN international NGO's and educational institutions to move this idea and work towards its successful imolementation, we are building the blocks to a more sustained peace in the enlightenment of young minds
