"Building Blocks of Peace" Teaching Resources
The Institute for Economics and Peace recently released the third annual Global Peace Index. The 'Building Blocks of Peace' is a downloadable lesson plan for educators offering teaching material which surrounds global peace. The materials are available free of charge at www.economicsandpeace.org. Unlike traditional peace education materials, these modules go beyond conflict resolution to explore the broader meaning of global peace and its impact on our daily lives. By working through each module and the extensive supporting information provided, students will learn how to define peace for themselves and gain an understanding of the key factors that encourage peaceful society.
