Peace Schools orient faculty, students, and families toward a regenerative culture of peace and justice, integrating knowledge and skills essential for peace and learning. Peace Gardens help children and adults learn to make peace with the natural world as the foundation of a peaceful, just society.
Peace Schools include preschools, primary, secondary, and vocational schools, student organizations, and 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.
