Teaching our children the value of tolerance and mutual respect by investing in the schools and teachers will build a fair and inclusive world that embraces diversity. Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might.
Why education matters for peace?
👉 Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.
👉 Education encourages independent thinking, and it opens doors to new ideas. Independent thinkers tend to try to make sense of the world and draw their own conclusions instead of blindly following the beliefs of others.
👉 Coupled with independent thinking, critical thinking skills can lead to innovative solutions and alternatives to violence.
👉 Through quality education, students may be armed with the tools to work within their communities to solve problems, or to do so on a global scale.
👉 Education reduces poverty. If poverty were reduced, violence would follow suit.
👉 With quality education, a child can learn the quality of empathy and understanding towards those who are different from them.
👉 Through quality education for all, around the world, by promoting education for peace, young people can be the voice of change and peace.
