This set of cards offers questions that might help to explore what needs to be done in order to create just and peaceful places and communities. It can be used to design an individual or group reflection, or discussion about peace education topics.

Aims of the tool

To spark a discussion about peace related topics, explore different pillars of peace and develop an understanding about role and contribution of an individual in peace building and peace education processes.

Description of the tool

With this set of cards, we wish to invite you to think more about building and sustaining peace, and the roles and possibilities of each of us to become peace educators and peace builders. You can use these cards to find ideas for topics for peace education sessions and activities, or to develop questions for groups and individual reflection. The questions also invite you to analyse processes and tendencies in your society, and the interactions of you, your community and environment.

This set of questions has been developed during the international project From Inside Out. The main theme of this project was peace education as an integral part of peace-building efforts. The project was designed to assist youth workers and educators in developing empathetic and creative leadership skills for delivering peace education activities and to empower them to become active peace builders in their communities.

One of the main problems with traditional peace building is the lack of a holistic approach. Many global peace initiatives are overly focused on the political levels of peace and conflict without considering the personal and interpersonal dimensions, where patterns of violence also exist. However, peace building is not only about responding to international conflicts, it is also about how we relate to ourselves and those around us. Thus, another aim of this project was to enhance participants’ understanding of peace education through a holistic and experiential approach, and to explore opportunities to integrate nature and place-based learning approaches and methods into peace education.

The main activity within this project was a residential, 9-days training course for youth workers, facilitators, teachers and peer educators, which was organised in June 2019, in Latvia, by the association Room of Fulfilled Dreams.

This training course gathered 25 participants and experts from Austria, Italy, Romania, Poland, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain and Turkey. During the training course, participants learned principles of, and different approaches to peace education, and discovered how to build peace within themselves, and in and between various groups.
