Peace Education Day 2022
The conference spotlighted the success of peace education in transforming lives of individuals and communities around the world.
The theme this year was “EMPOWERING EDUCATORS FOR PEACE”
The broadcast was broken up into sections we have reproduced them (on our YouTube channel) in the different sections with the videos from each section; in the order they were broadcast on the day
Here are some recordings from Peace Education Day 2022.
UN Global Peace Education Day Campaign
The United Nations has established more than 150 international days for different humanitarian themes. However, there is no day dedicated specifically to the theme of peace education. Because peace education is central to the United Nations central mission, it certainly deserves a special day for public awareness – a day to promote practical efforts in peace education throughout the world, a day to empower educators for peace; a day to connect and celebrate with others in the peace education field.
Culture of Peace
What skills and knowledge do we need to build a culture of peace on a healthy planet? Some leading voices offer examples.
What skills must we learn to support more than a million people forced to flee their homes by conflict, climate change and persecution? Can peace education make us more human?
Peace & Justice
“No justice, no peace.” How do we create a culture that offers peace, prosperity and dignity to every human being? How will peace education help us to face prejudice and injustice? How do we make equality reality?
Peace & Leadership
How do peacebuilding skills merge with global economics to promote a culture of peace? How will peace education stop the scourge of prejudice and violence?
Peace & Planet
The UN Secretary General warns that “we’re sleepwalking toward climate catastrophe.” How can education reverse this trend? Young global activists showcase solutions.
Arts & Peace
The language of the arts flows through borders and transforms lives. How do arts and culture nurture peace skills? Our artists offer a creative exploration.
Peace & War
Nuclear holocaust is closer than ever before. Armed conflicts are raging in 27 countries, with civilian populations mistreated by the military. How can peace education help end the threat of war?
In order to build a culture of peace on a healthy planet, the Global Peace Education Network connects peace educators and communities, advocates peace education policies and programs, and campaigns for an official United Nations Global Peace Education Day.
