Working for Peace

“It isn’t enough to talk about peace, one must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it, one must work for it.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Watch unsupervised children at play and most people will come to the conclusion that human beings are not by nature peaceful creatures. Being peaceful inside oneself and with other people and with all the other living things that inhabit our world is something that must be taught and practiced by people who have come to value life over greed and power.

This is a blog about teaching peace. Each post will discuss a way to make the world a more peaceful place or introduce a person who represents a peace educator or feature an event that celebrates peace. We encourage you to share these ideas with your family, your children, your students ,and your neighbors. If we all work at it, we can make the world a more peaceful place—one person at a time.

We hope you make us your source for lessons, book reviews, school projects and peace happenings. Sign up for our free monthly newsletter.

We welcome your comments and love to hear about how you are educating for peace.
