A Peace Club is a great way for students to turn commitment into action. It can help you connect and organize with others interested in peace. It’s a framework that promotes learning about peace and gaining skills to deal with conflict; and then putting those elements together to find ways to take action to make the world a better place.
Peace Clubs have no set form and the resources below provide an adaptable framework that can be creatively modified: it is specific enough to compare experiences between Peace Clubs, but broad enough to be flexible to the needs of individual schools and communities.
Once you’ve organized a Peace Club, let us know! USIP can then recognize your efforts and let others know about your great initiative!
