Education has always been important to the Peace Pledge Union (PPU). We believe that young people should hear a range of views and perspectives about issues of war and peace, allowing them to form their own views as they grow up. Building a culture of peace is a priority for PPU and a part of this process is both to question and to challenge a culture of violence.
On the right-hand side you will find links to a range of resources organised according to educational stage.
We have an Education Network page on Facebook for sharing ideas and resources. You can find some of our resources on the TES website too. We can provide speakers and workshops, colleges and other groups. We also send out a quarterly e-newsletter sharing news and updates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the circulation list.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for please do get in touch, we may be able to help. You can email us at email@example.com or call us on 020 7424 9444.
You can read more on our campaigning pages about our challenges to militarism in schools.
Further resources are available on the Peace Education Network website which includes the PPU as well as several other groups promoting education for peace.
Peace Research and Education Trust: Our educational work, extensive library and archive are funded by the Peace Research and Education Trust (PRET). PRET supports peace research, believing that to build peace without the use of violence, all need to understand the conditions for its growth and to develop the skills to overcome obstacles to peace. You can find out more, including how to contribute to PRET, at their website.
