Rauhankoulun piirroskuvassa on neljä iloista lasta ja nuorta

The project “Peace School” was first established in the late 90’s to meet the requirements that arose from Finnish school children. Teachers felt a need for a student based and participatory way of dealing with issues of war (at that time especially the Bosnia war) and peace. This was a challenge for the Peace Union of Finland and the Peace Education Institute.

The activists and volunteers developed the project called the Peace School. Soon, drama was introduced as a method for giving tools to understand peace and deal with the arising issues. Since 2008, the funding for the two-year projects have mainly come from the development fund of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
