The aim of Peacemakers is to equip people in all walks of life to deal peacefully and creatively with the inevitable conflicts that arise for all of us.
They work with people in different types of communities to create peace through exploring, learning about and practising peace. They have a particular emphasis on working with schools.
Peacemakers has two resources they’d like to share:
Building Peaceful Schools – A Junior Peacemakers ‘how to’ guide to running one-off workshops this toolkit is full of ideas and activities to help you run your own Junior Peacemakers one day workshop for Primary pupils. There are 6 themes to choose from [Refugee Issues, WW1, Climate Justice, Anti-bullying, Making a Difference, Healthy Schools] and lots of advice on how to set up and run the day. Whether you are a classroom teacher looking to run an off-timetable day, a facilitator wanting to offer a workshop to local schools or you have access to a venue that you can invite school groups too, you will find support in this resource. Free to download.
Learning for Peace – includes a book and online resources for primary schools wanting to bring fresh approaches to pupils’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development. SMSC dovetails with the core ideas of Education for Peace which are presented through 5 themes – Inner Peace, Peaceful Choices, Peaceful Actions and Behaviours; Peaceful Relationships and Peaceful Communities.
The book and online resources costs £30 plus P&P, £20 per copy if you buy 3 or more.
