The work of peace is the work of generations, and education plays a critical role in such efforts over the long haul.
For more than 20 years, we have been building a unique, reflective community of Seeds of Peace Educators from the Middle East, South Asia, the United States, and the United Kingdom, who support Seeds alumni in their home communities while reaching additional youth and adults, multiplying our impact in schools and communities across the regions where we work.
Our programs emphasize the creativity, responsibility, and influence of the teacher. We believe strongly in the importance of the educator’s craft, in the arts and experiential learning, and in the potential of committed educators to inspire and cultivate new generations of global leaders.
We offer transformative learning and professional development opportunities that spark the moral imagination, build capacity and community, and empower adults and youth to transform conflict and engage effectively in social issues of pressing concern.
We also offer a variety of Educator Resources.
Educators can play a powerful role in transforming conflict, particularly by preparing young people for peace and supporting their involvement in peace-building efforts.
