Welcome to the self-training course on Education for Peace.
This self-training modular course on Education for
Peace is designed under the supervision of the Dakar-based UNESCO Regional
Office (BREDA) in partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB).
It is a toolkit for use by ECOWAS Member countries; it's
translated into French, English and Portuguese, free and available at all times
online and on CD Rom.
The ultimate goal of this
course is to build a critical mass of ECOWAS citizens equipped with competent
skills, not only for cognitive and psycho-motor domains of education, but also
affective skills for positive values, attitudes and behaviors that promote
peace, tolerance and peaceful co-existence of community citizens.
It targets three significant skills:
Cooperate socially by living with others for the purpose of achieving
common development goals and sustainable social change in the ECOWAS region
Affirm one's citizenship through critical thinking in order to develop
means of self-reliance.
Participate, together with other citizens, in the process of preparing,
implementing and evaluating public policies based on the defence of an
individual's human rights and the rights of others.
