The SOLIDAR Foundation has published a declaration of joint advocacy, titled “Manifesto for Peace Education as a public good”.
The manifesto, inspired by the events that Europe and the world are currently experiencing, was written with the urge of increasing efforts for Peace Education. In fact, in the Year of Skills 2023, the SOLIDAR Foundation urges for a shift, from a labour market oriented education towards an education that highlights peace and global citizenship.
Moreover, it proposes to highlight the connections between Peace Education and other policy frameworks (education for human rights, global citizenship, global education, and education for sustainable development) and advocates “for more public resources to be given to Peace Education and to the civil society organisations implementing it, using non-formal education and informal learning, ensuring a whole school approach, for all learners, in an inclusive, just and sustainable way”.
