As director of the Connecticut Center for Peace Education, I have decided to expand our presence in cyberspace and enter the world of blogging. Pax Educare is a small resource center for the research, study and teaching of peace located in Hartford, CT. We promote the idea that pedagogical processes and skills are crucial to peacebuilding and to develop the kind of world we want for our children and grandchildren. We hope to use this site for a peaceful exchange of ideas and resources.

Along with the board chair of Pax Educare, I just returned from Cleveland, OH and Case Western Reserve University, where 170 peace educators from many different settings (K-12, community, academic, NGOs, grass-roots) gathered to design a protype for a National Peace Academy, to be housed at Case Western. This is an exciting endeavor and one which will move forward a Culture of Peace. For more information on the NAP, go to www.nationalpeaceacademy.us.

We continue to offer intergenerational workshops on nonviolence and leadership, using the HIPP (Help Increase the Peace) program, first developed by Quakers and the American Friends Service Committee. If you would like more information on HIPP, please contact us.

We also promote peace pedagogy in many different settings and offer consultation on resources worldwide.
