Today at the Peace Museum Vienna we’re getting ready for the International Peace Day on September 21st. We’ll be invited to the International School of Vienna to promote peace education with the students.
Since children are the future of the world, it is important to let them understand how it is possible to live with each other without violent confrontation or aggressiveness, in order to be more tolerant and open towards other people. The International School in Vienna is definitely a nice environment to improve relationships with each other and foster a more equal and tolerant future, plus is also very active in enriching the learning experience of the students by organizing some events such as the one we’ll join tomorrow. Our aim is to highlight how peace is something to look for every day and to build up every day with small actions and examples. We should remember to children how peace lies in our hands and how examples in daily lives can also inspire and help others.
Peace Education with children is one of the main aim of the Peace Museum Vienna. We try to educate them to tolerance and love from a very young age to make them understand the importance of respect and tolerance with other people and with the rest of the world. This way we make them understand their role and their relevance in fostering peace, harmony and acceptance; by making the Museum also more alive and interactive. Peace starts from within, as a state of mind, and only when children are peaceful and aware of their actions, they can inspire and educate adults and the other people around them. Children could be the first Peace Heroes we educate on the grounds of what we learned from our previous peace heroes.
I will update you on the event tomorrow! In the meantime, try to be active and be aware of the way your actions impact the environment you live in.
