In order for us to create a better world where we live
in a culture of peace, the world must learn to live
together peacefully. The Better World Movement will
show the world that WE WANT A BETTER WORLD and then
help teach the world how to create it. Because we live
in an often violent, profit-driven culture, it is hard
to learn how to live for a better world. Better World
Education - including peacebuilding and environmental
education -- is desperately needed to help teach us
how to live a better world lifestyle. Fortunately, many
are helping to bring environmental awareness and peace
education into our schools to educate the next generation
for a better world.
Whether or not we have our own children, we can help.
In our families, we can help raise peacebuilders, by
sharing our values and by setting a good example. We
can help promote peace education, conflict resolution
and environmental sustainability in our schools and
advocate for legislation that promotes these tools.
Better World Education isn't just for the young. Adults
need to learn about peace and sustainability, too. Young
people can help teach adults the peacemaking and sustainability
skills and tools they've learned.
