Learning Peace – Challenging Militarism

Peace Party is all about “Learning to Abolish War” as well as learning peace: Education is one of the Party’s “key strategies for confronting the war system and establishing alternatives”.

The Peace Party’s “thinking about education goes beyond simply informing people about the issues (although that is critically important).”

“Education is a tool we use to bring people together to exchange ideas; discover solutions and strategies that don’t yet exist; develop skills and capacities to change the war system; and to challenge the militaristic assumptions and mindsets that keeps our security system in the dark ages. Education is both informing and transforming.”
