My Journey as a Peace Educator. Peace Education Miniprints No. 100.
This paper discusses the need to prepare teachers as agents for a culture of peace. It notes that the core values in a culture of peace are environmental sustainability, cultural diversity, human solidarity, social responsibility, and gender equality. For each of these values, there is a complementary human capacity to be developed through teacher education, making it possible for teachers to cultivate these values and capacities in their students. These capacities are ecological awareness, cultural competency, global agency, conflict proficiency, and gender sensitivity. The paper suggests a number of recommendations to help promote developments in these directions, addressing them to UNESCO, ministries of education, and educational and professional associations.
