UNESCO Peace Pack (Combined)
The UNESCO Peace Pack is a set of materials for the elementary school teacher. It was prepared following a series of seven subregional Culture of Peace Children’s Festivals held in 1995. A thousand Peace Packs were produced on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations and UNESCO (1995). These resource materials were tested successfully in 125 countries. As its contribution to the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World, UNESCO distributed the Peace Pack worldwide beginning in 2001. The various pieces are no longer directly available via UNESCO’s website, but this combined document retrieved from the internet archive extends its availability.
Included in the combined document is a teacher’s handbook explaining and describing the various materials in the package. Also included is a set of topical posters on a series of topics of concern to children with corresponding questions for discussions. In addition, there are seven activity cards which deal with the following topics:
– What is peace?
– Tolerance and respect
– Conflict the wrong way
– What are my rights?
– It’s our world
– Getting to know you – intercultural learning
– Learning together
Also included is a set of Appeals to world leaders that were written by the children at the seven regional UNESCO Peace Festivals. Students are encouraged to review the appeals and suggest changes or additions.
