Peace Education Webinar Series

Through a peace education webinar series, GPPAC's peace education experts will share their decades of experience integrating peace education into formal (schools, colleges and universities) and informal (community) education structures.

Our peace education experts from all corners of the world have been working together to exchange information, skills, and strategies, on how best to engage and collaborate with key stakeholders to help build capacity in their education systems in association with GPPAC for 12 years.  Their combined years of experience however, tallies to more than a century! This unique group of experts include civil society, teachers, academia and representatives of Ministries of Education or relevant country-wide governmental and national education agencies, creating a global multi-stakeholder platform.

Webinar: Building Capacity from a Local to Global Level

The first webinar was given by Jennifer Batton, Chair of the GPPAC Peace Education Working Group. She shared good practices in teacher education, curriculum development and integration and student/youth programming in social emotional learning, multicultural/citizenship education, peacebuilding and conflict resolution.
