Nordland, Eva, Ed.
The essence of peace education is to involve the students in expectations about possible changes in the direction of a cooperative and caring planet, to create attitudes through involving young and old in caring and protecting activities, and to make it possible to turn some of the caring and protecting activities into habits. These are some of the core ideas of the project for Ecological and Cooperative Education (PEACE), a cross national project with participants from Russia, Ukraine, Slovenia, Croatia, the United States, and the Scandinavian countries. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions on ecological and cooperative education at the project's meeting in Norway, in March, 1994. The report is divided into 7 parts. Part 1 focuses on human rights and security and contains three articles: (1) "Children's Rights" (Annelise Droyer); (2) "Good Neighbors, We and They" (Willard G. Jacobson; Carol W. Jacobson); and (3) "Education as Part of NGO's Work" (Betty Nicolaisen). Part 2, focusing on ecological challenges, contains: (1) "Making the Children Participants" (Tatiana Tkachenko); (2) "Ecological Education" (Ludmila Voloditina); and (3) "Nature as Part of Education" (Julia Kipko). Part 3, focusing on cooperation and conflict resolution contains "Communication and Conflict" (Nina Ashkinazy; Galina Kovalyova). Part 4, focusing on peace education in English teaching, contains two article: (1) "Peace and Cooperation through English Teaching" (Jana Krakova); and (2) "Content of Foreign Language Teaching" (Felix Litvin).
