Having worked on peace education with adolescents I realise how important the early socialisation into peaceful ways of resolving/managing conflict are.
This has to work on a personal, family, group, community level before we can hope to move towards peaceful coexistence in the world.
Podcast: Peacebuilding through Early Childhood Education
UNICEFEvidence shows that the early years of life are strong predictors for individual health and development, as well as cognitive and social-emotional development.

Pruett is a Professor of Child Psychiatry at Yale University, Michael Evans is the Founder and Executive Director of Full Court Peace – and Siobhan Fitzpatrick is Chief Executive of Early Years.
