Teaching children to play nicely in the sandbox is one of the first lessons when they go to school. The purpose of Promoting a Culture of Peace for Children Society of British Columbia is to facilitate peace education and social responsibility lessons for children. The War Toys to Peace Art curriculum has been introduced and used by many educators in British Columbia to help children learn conflict resolution strategies and develop an understanding of human rights.
Visit our CultureofPeace4kids blog ( cultureofpeace4kids.wordpress.com ) to see some of the possibilities for visual art, music and drama projects. Funding is available for fine art projects done by children and shared with an audience. Follow the projects link on this page to see information required and submission deadlines.
For those of you on Twitter, please use #peace4kids to share ideas with like minded educators, program leaders and parents.
