The UN and its agencies have adopted clear statements concerning human rights and responsibilities which recognize peace as an essential human construct. Education as the principal vehicle which will develop and inculcate school age children with the habit of peace.

The following guiding principles have been taken from the covenants and agreements produced by the international community over the last 50 years. They are central to the education for peace program:

 

Dignity - Equality - Liberty - Justice - Responsibility

Security - Solidarity - Democracy

 

Schools are encouraged to explore and analyze these principles within their communities so that they are accepted as the foundation for building a culture of peace.
