While we spend a lot of time discussing the issue of violence, we rarely devote as much time to talking about the subject of peace. What is Peace Literacy? It is thought to be the next step in the development of our global civilization.  Teachers of peace literacy, like those on this program, believe that it is necessary in an interconnected world where the fate of every nation is tied to the fate of our planet.  They also claim that during an era when humanity has the technological capacity to destroy itself, peace literacy can be “survival literacy.” They believe a peace literate world is a secure, just, and prosperous world, and they work to bring peace literacy education to schools and communities around the world.
