Question: Culture of Peace books for children, What is available? CPNN article: Culture of Peace Declaration - A Book Version for Children

This beautifully written and illustrated book brings the culture of peace full circle.  

The original concept of culture of peace was put forth in 1986 in a children's book published in Peru by Father Felipe MacGregor, entitled simply "Cultura de Paz."  

Father MacGregor later took part in the Yamoussoukro Congress on Peace in the Minds of Men (1989), sponsored by UNESCO and held in Côte D'Ivoire, where he introduced the concept of the culture of peace into the final declaration of the Congress.  It was on that basis that UNESCO's culture of peace program was founded a few years later.

As far as I know the book "Cultura de Paz"  is not available in other languages, not available on the Internet, and not available in print.  My personal copy is a treasure.   It would be a good project to scan and put it on line and to prepare translations.

Perhaps it is not by accident that both of these children's books about culture of peace were written in Spanish, and remain available only in Spanish.  One could say that it symbolizes the leading role that Latin America has played from the beginning in the culture of peace movement.
