Title: Learning for Peace

Authors: Shannen Johnson, Jude Wright. The Peace Museum, UK

Abstract: In 2017 The Peace Museum launched a brand new education programme for schools and since then has seen a huge increase in demand for the peace themed workshops on offer for pupils aged from 5 and up. The museum also runs a successful education outreach project, Choices, which has been promoted as an example of Best Practice by the Home Office. Come and find out more about the museum's education work, how we engage children and young people in the themes of peace and how we continue to develop our programmes as we look to the future.
