2019 Country Training (Colombia "Strengthening In-service Teacher Training System in Peace Education")

A three-week training program dedicated to peace education in Colombia was completed on December 6, 2019. This training was conducted by a Colombian educator who decided that peace education will be the subject of primary, secondary, and higher education in 2016 when a peace agreement was concluded from the civil war. We are implementing it with the purpose of understanding and contributing to the improvement of the quality of peace education in our country.

This project is a three-year project, and this year, the first year, 10 trainees learned the practice of peace education in Okinawa. I hope that the Okinawan practice will help Colombian peace education even a little.
