In its own words “The Peace Education Day Conference is a joint project of UNESCO Centre for Peace, Spanish Federation of UNESCO Associations and Clubs, Pathways to Peace, The Prem Rawat Foundation, National Peace Academy, Unity Foundation, PeaceChannel.com, and other groups in a newly formed Peace Education Network, which is actively committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The goal of this conference is to assemble a global network of peace educators and establish a United Nations Peace Education Day recognising that peace building skills, strategies, and structures are foundational to all other humanitarian endeavours.”
1,600 people from 86 countries attended the Zoom webinar, and another 1,500 people from around the world viewed the livestream version. In response to many requests a replay of the entire conference is now available on PeaceChannel.com or on the PeaceChannel Youtube channel. The first part of the conference includes an introduction from conference MC Michael Nouri, as well as a keynote speech from Prem Rawat, founder of The Prem Rawat Foundation and The Peace Education Programme.
