Date of Session: June 11, 2011

Session Description: Initiatives undertaken, mainly by the Center for Peace Education, in cooperation with the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) and the Global Campaign for Peace Education, towards promoting and mainstreaming peace education in the Philippines will be shared along with practices and projects that may be useful to other contexts. A hopeful sign, the presence of an Executive Order calling for the “Institutionalization of Peace Education in Basic Education and Teacher Education” will be reviewed along with the initial progress on implementing the Executive Order.
