Introduction

Making Peace is a major public (indoor/outdoor) event that aims to teach the public, especially young people what key elements are necessary to create a 'sustainable peace'; providing an opportunity for people of all ages to get involved in bringing about positive change. Activities include a large outdoor photographic exhibition curated by Ashley Woods (formerly with Magnum Photos) that pays tribute to the people who — all over the planet — devote their time, energy and resources to the cause of peace.

Making Peace was first produced to mark the centenary of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the International Peace Bureau (IPB) in 1910.

I really do believe that Making Peace provides a fantastic opportunity to engage with schools about Peace Education and to link schools with local bodies, NGOs and community groups working on Peace.
