The "People of Peace Education" project showcases profiles of peace educators from around the world!
People of Peace Education is a joint project of the AHDR and the International Institute on Peace Education (IIPE), is a publication and website that elevates the work of peace education to the general public by providing glimpses of the lives and work of peace educators from all around the world. You may visit the website here: www.people-pe.ahdr.i-i-p-e.org
The project was launched following the 2019 International Institute on Peace Education (IIPE) that was held in Nicosia, Cyprus exploring the theme of “Educating for a Culture of Peace in Divided Societies: History, Dialogue, and Multiperspectivity Toward Reconciliation”. (For more information about 2019 IIPE, please click: https://www.i-i-p-e.org/iipe2019/
The first 70+ profiles added to this site are the participants of IIPE 2019. Their stories are also featured in a print publication which serves as the outcome report of the 2019 IIP hosted by the AHDR in Nicosia, Cyprus between 21 and 28 July 2019. The original print publication and website development was made possible with funding from the Federal Foreign Office of the Republic of Germany. As the final outcomes of the IIPE 2019 experience, both the website and the publication, aim to motivate others to undertake transformative action in their schools, neighborhoods, communities, towns and countries, and connect with others that share the same vision for sustainable peace. New profiles will be added to the People of Peace Education on a regular basis and will be cross-promoted in partnership with the Global Campaign for Peace Education.
