About the Global Campaign
The Global Campaign for Peace Education (GCPE) was launched at the Hague Appeal for Peace Conference in 1999. It is a non-formal, international organized network that promotes peace education among schools, families, and communities to transform the culture of violence into a culture of peace. The Campaign has two goals:
- To build public awareness and political support for the introduction of peace education into all spheres of education, including non-formal education, in all schools throughout the world.
- To promote the education of all teachers to teach for peace.

“Mapping Peace Education” is a global research initiative coordinated by the GCPE. It is an open-access, online resource for peace education researchers, donors, practitioners, and policy-makers who are looking for data on formal and non-formal peace education efforts in countries around the world to develop contextually relevant and evidence-based peace education to transform conflict, war, and violence.
