Peace Libraries support children in learning through books, stories, events and workshops to practice the ways of peaceful, nonviolent society. Peace Schools orient faculty, students, and families toward a regenerative culture of peace, integrating knowledge and skills essential for peace and learning. Peace Gardens help children and adults embody their knowledge in the ways they interact with the natural world as well as each other.
Peace Libraries include community centers and mobile programs. Peace Schools include preschools, primary, secondary, and vocational schools, student organizations, or community learning groups. Peace Gardens bring the learning outside to gardens developed based on permaculture principles. We collect books, materials, and stories of peace and nonviolence that develop skills, knowledge, and literacy. We teach peace, nonviolence, mediation, and reconciliation to young people, teens, and adults, especially parents, teachers, librarians, farmers, and community volunteers.
Activities and events support human development and reconstitute capabilities eroded by violence and trauma. Literacy and vocation turn people away from violence, and towards peaceful means to ensure survival.
