Are you a teacher, youth worker, young adult, volunteer, parent/carer interested in peace education? Would you like to meet Quakers from across Europe, share practice and ways to strengthen the call for peace education?

The Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA) and Quaker Peace & Social Witness (QPSW) are organising a conference in Brussels on 20-22 May 2021 with the theme of "The Possibilities of Peace Education: Evidence and opportunities". The gathering will provide a space for Quakers from across Europe to come together online, make new connections and reflect over the course of three days. Together, we will explore how education can sow the seeds of sustainable peace and heal divisions. We will discuss how peace education can become mainstreamed in EU and national policies at a time of increasing polarisation and conflict.

The conference is open to Friends from across Europe. Area Meetings are invited to appoint, and support, a Friend to attend. Quakers engaged in peace education projects are encouraged to take part.

Want to join us in May 2021? More information on how to register your interest can be found below!
