Peace Education starts with the Young Generation

Cornelia Reimer  – Arc 2020

Conflicts in the world are a general phenomenon; they are also the result of a culture developed in years of constant rivalry in a given multireligious and/or multicultural

society. To bring an end to conflict and violence means to transform culture in its essence and to generate a state of wellbeing for all its people. The starting point of cultural change and transformation ideally is a transformed mind of the next generation. This, of course, implies peacebuilding practices taught by people of insight, e.g. informed adults and peace-loving youth as educators of other youth and children.
