These lessons have been edited for educators by Andrea Libresco and Jeannette Balantic in cooperation with the International Advisory Committee of the Global Campaign for Peace Education. There is also a wonderful forword by South Africa's former Minister for Education, Kader Asmal, a lesson on how to create your own peace lesson by Prof. Betty Reardon, and pages of helpful resources.
Other peace lessons that were not included in the book will soon be posted on this website and as lessons are received they will be added.
We firmly believe that to reach peace we need to teach peace, and this book represents the third publication from the Hague Appeal for Peace to help accomplish this goal. The first book, Learning to Abolish War, Teaching for a Culture of Peace can be down loaded from this home page as well as the Peace and Disarmament Education book, the story of the partnership with Albania, Cambodia, Niger and Peru with the United Nations Department for Disarmament, to help change mindsets and sustain the removal of small arms.
The mission of the Hague Appeal for Peace is in transition to the wonderful new organization, Peace Boat-US. You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to their website, which is being constructed, www.peaceboat-us.org
We salute each of you who is doing something to move from the culture of violence which has defined the past century and the beginning of this new century, to a culture of peace which must define the rest of this century so there can be a safe, peaceful and just future for our children and grandchildren and theirs.
This website will remain, but will not be changed save for the addition of new peace lessons. Peace Boat-US will continue our work and add their own also in the interest of reaching peace with justice for all.
We will not disappear, just move on, and are grateful that a younger generation of experienced wonderful people will continue this rewarding and important work from our office.
Cora Weiss, President
for the Hague Appeal for Peace.
