In conjunction with United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization's 40th anniversary, 1986 was named the International Year of Peace. During 1986, UNESCO selected the theme "peace" as an education project to be undertaken in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Venezuela. The development of educational materials that would seek to emphasize new methods of teaching about peace, while emphasizing each country's economic, social, political, and cultural uniqueness, was stressed. Materials were produced by each country and a conference was convened to: (1) investigate, develop, apply, and evaluate the suggested materials and teaching methods; (2) improve teachers' knowledge and skills in relation to peace activities; and (3) stimulate peace awareness through specific daily activities. Results of the peace projects indicate an increased awareness of and interest in peace education and a desire to exchange materials, ideas, and teaching methods. Recommendations for future activities are described, and appendices include the conference program, a participant list, and welcoming speeches. (JHP)
