Educating a New Generation of Peace Leaders as a Way to Prevent Homegrown Terrorism

This paper presents an innovative, new model for educating and empowering a new generation of young peace leaders as a way to prevent homegrown terrorism. The model is based on the “Peace Guerilla” (PG) pilot project that the Canadian International Institute of Applied Negotiation (CIIAN) ran with grade 6 and 7 students at Ross Road Elementary School in North Vancouver, BC in 2011.
