Education for peace


txprograma

The Education for Peace (EP) Programme was created to promote and develop EP values and attitudes among people both inside and outside the university community. In accordance with the objective of education against conformism and for critical and transformational awareness, emphasis is placed on the need to educate in and for conflict. A positive outlook on conflict is regained so that strategies and skills are created to enable people to face conflict by non-violent means. Training workshops for young people, educators, council personnel, etc. are provided to this end. The EP Programme staff members also work on community mediation initiatives and participate in the production of educational materias for various organisations. The Programme has also coordinated the campus subject Education for Peace at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) since 2002.


Conflict Matters online platform

Knowing that educators are keen to discover and share new approaches and practices, the Evens Foundation has launched this website as a new platform to enable dissemination and connection.

Conflict Matters online platform It is a space that offers trainers and school educators who deal with conflict a tool to strengthen their practices and to connect with a European community of practice.

For some years now, the Evens Foundation has been gathering information on good practices in peace education through its Peace Education Prize as well as through practitioners, school exchanges involving job-shadowing, and practitioners’ learning laboratories.

Knowing that educators are keen to discover and share new approaches and practices, the Evens Foundation has launched this website as a new platform to enable dissemination and connection.

The aims of this platform are to:
• Make visible a diversity of good educational practices and approaches that deal with conflict, from all across Europe.
• Identify the key elements that make a practice a success.
• Provide a space for reflective practice and external assessment.
• Facilitate contact between practices in the conflict education field.

The practices you will find in this map have been selected and described following a process of dialogue between the Evens Foundation, the Escola de Cultura de Pau (Autonomous University of Barcelona) and each of the practitioners. This process allowed them to identify the strengths of each practice, reflect on the process of implementing it, and highlight its good results.
