Peace Education Online!
an article by Martha Roberts, President, World Citizen

For 10 years World Citizen has successfully been offering fall and spring Peace Education workshops. We don't promote a particular curriculum. We focus on bringing together and supporting peace educators (schools, churches, parents, community members, etc.) to focus on how to weave the following actions that lead to peace into an existing curriculum:

International Peace Sites in North America - There are over 750 in the world

SEEK peace within yourself and others

REACH out in service

PROTECT the environment

PROMOTE intercultural understanding and celebrate diversity

BE a responsible citizen of the world

And now you can increase your peacemaking skills and communicate with others who are doing the same in the comfort of your own home. PEACE EDUCATION IS ONLINE!

In partnership with Hamline University, you may also register at this site to earn 2 Graduate Credits or simply register through World Citizen for Continuing Ed Credits. THE COURSE BEGINS JANUARY 15, 2013.

For more info re the course and to register: Click on the registration button on World Citizen Home Page. All the information you will need is there, including who to contact if you need help.

We hope you can join us in this exciting adventure. Be sure to spread the word to others who may be ready for this opportunity.
