The Elements of a Network to Educate for World Security.
Network to Educate for World Security, New York, NY.
This publication examines efforts to educate for peace and disarmament. A proposal by the Network to Educate for World Security for the establishment of a United Nations sponsored disarmament fund devoted to worldwide peace and security education is presented in Section One. Section Two contains papers that suggest how the traditional way to transmit culture (education) and the basic tool for forming and reforming adult opinion (communication) can transform the universal desire for peace into habitual practices of peace. The dual fear of arms and disarming in a world rife with complexities and conflict is explored. The third section focuses on classrooms from kindergarten through the post graduate level and discusses what is and can be done toward peace and security education in the schools. Issues and attitudes that divide integrating international and security topics into the curriculum are also included. Section Four expands the concept of education to include all ways adults form opinions such as radio, TV, community activities, and cultural events. In Section Five, groups who are actually engaged in teaching and communicating about peace describe their programs. Some examples include the Institute of International Education, the United Nations University, Global Perspectives in Education, and the World Federalists. An administrative model for the proposed United Nations sponsored disarmament fund is presented. The model ties what can be done with how it can be carried out in a worldwide, visible, and flexible way. (Author/RM)
