When asked to think of the converse of ‘peace’, you maybe minded to say ‘violence’, with images of physical harm or war in far off lands coming to mind. Yet violence exists in many forms, and the seeds exist all around us – even in relatively peaceful societies such as ours. This session will explore the concept of ‘peace education’ and how it can be applied to the working with Children & Young People across a variety of professional settings. By looking at how ‘violence’ is multi-dimensional, it is hoped that you will see the benefits of incorporating peace educational practices into your professional role in a way which will holistic, positive wellbeing outcomes for the children and young people you work with.
