The UNESCO General Conference officially approved a proposal to revise the 1974 Recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding, Co-operation and Peace and Education relating to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The revised Recommendation will reflect evolved understandings of education, as well as new threats to peace, toward providing international standards for the promotion of peace through education. The Global Campaign for Peace Education is contributing to the development of a technical note that will support the revision process.
