Webinar: Lessons Learned from Three Decades of Peace Education Work

On 24 April, our peace education expert Loreta Castro will share her expertise from her peace education work over the past 30 years. The session will present some of the lessons that she has learned over the course of her peace education work, including insights and suggestions that might be helpful to educators who are in similar contexts.

Date & time: 24 April 2019, 09.00 (GMT +1 / CET)

Our peace education experts will share their decades of experience integrating peace education into formal (schools, colleges and universities) and informal (community) education structures. Through these monthly webinars, our experts aim to assist civil society organisations, governments and donors as they develop and implement peace education regionally and country-wide.

About Loreta Castro

Loreta has worked with the GPPAC Peace Education Working group since 2007, a decade after she initiated the Center for Peace Education in Miriam College, which became the first of its kind in the island of Luzon, Philippines. Since the 1980s education for peace and nonviolence has been her passion as an educator. She has endeavored to institutionalize peace education in her own school and thereafter has tried to this day to share her experience, knowledge and inspiration with other schools and organizations. To date she has helped in many capacity-building activities not only in her country but also in many others.  She initiated a Peace Education Network in the country in 1999 and has been in leadership roles either as steering committee member or Executive Committee member of peace-related bodies such as Pax Christi International, the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative and the Philippine Council for Peace and Global Education. She has co-authored a book, Peace Education: a Pathway to a Culture for Peace and has prepared a Peace Education Training Manual for GPPAC Southeast Asia.
