Creating a culture of peace through Education

Ignorance is a killer. If you fail to educate your child and yourself, you're breeding a potential killer.
Give PEACE a chance by giving EDUCATION a chance.

Think about this...

"The world spends almost twice as much on weapons in one day than the United Nations spends for our global mission of peace, human rights and development in one year." - UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon

"To fundamentally tackle the roots of conflict, we need to promote an understanding of our common humanity. We need a culture that upholds human dignity and human life.

We are here to talk about how to create this culture of peace.
I have a simple, one-word answer: education.
Through education, we teach children not to hate.
Through education, we raise leaders who act with wisdom and compassion.
Through education, we establish a true, lasting culture of peace."

- excerpts from the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon's speech to the General Assembly High-Level Forum on the Culture of Peace (14 September 2012)
