On the 29th of April, we held the first session of the first series of Education of Culture of Peace workshops with educators. It was great to receive many applications-beyond our initial target. In these non-formal and interactive workshops, educators were introduced to the field of Peace Education, with an overview of the history, central concepts and practices within the field.

We are aiming to work together with educators for three years to plant the seeds of a Culture of Peace together in a sustainable way within the school system.

Special thanks to Oya Akın and Süleyman Gelener for this great session.
