INTERACTIONS FOR PEACE
How does your system establish a foundation for self-esteem, cooperation, peaceful communication, and conflict resolution?
The Core Collaborative Learning Network and Interactions for Peace are partnering globally to educate lifelong, peaceful, problem solvers. The aim of Interactions for Peace is to develop and leverage meaningful relationships to empower learners to cooperate and solve conflict in positive ways.
THE INTERACTIONS FOR PEACE FIVE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS
The five elements of peace establish a foundation for a productive culture that leaves a positive impact on the local and global community.
SELF AWARENESS AND CONFIDENCE – By understanding our feelings, exploring what we believe and the kind of person we want to be, we learn to respect ourselves and others.
COOPERATION – By knowing our feelings, choices and actions, we collaborate and work as a team. Together we can do what none of us can do alone.
COMMUNICATION – By listening and developing a common vocabulary, we share our feelings and thoughts. We study the language of conflict and practice the language of peace knowing that understanding comes through communication, and through understanding we find the way to peace.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION and CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION – By empowering all with knowledge and strategies, we move from conflict, violence, and aggression, to an intellectual and peaceful outcome.
PARENT and COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS – By reaching out to our family, friends, and community through education and service in our local and global neighborhoods, we complete the circle of peace.
