The PPU believes that Education for Peace should be properly and fully integrated into the curriculum

At its core, educational provision should develop pupils’ disdain for considering violence as a way of resolving difference at local, national or international levels. Pupils should explore ways of resolving disputes and disagreements without resort to violence; developing methods of conflict resolution should be prioritised.

Pupils should develop critical awareness and the challenging of what could be described as people’s 'common sense' notions of the world.

The resources that are found on this section of the PPU website provide the basis for an Education for Peace and they will continue to be developed to enable ways of getting learners to explore the causes of war and how to prevent them.

The PPU welcomes any comments you may have about these resources. If you want to help with this work let us know.
