As war spreads to many comers of the globe, children sadly have been drawn into the center of conflicts. In Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Colombia, however, groups of children have been taking part in peace education 47 projects.The children, after learning to resolve conflicts, took on the 48 role of peacemakers. The Children’s Movement for peacemakers was even nominated(提名) for the Nobel peace prize in 1998. Groups of children 49 acting as peacemakers studied human rights an poverty issues in Colombia, eventually forming a group with five other schools in Bogota known a The Schools of Peace.
The classroom 50 offers opportunities for children to replace angry, violent behaviors with 51cooperative, peaceful ones. It is in the classroom that caring and respect for each person empowers children to take a step 52 forward toward becoming peacemakers. Fortunately, educators have access to many online resources that are 53 especially useful when helping children along the path to peace. The Young Peacemakers Club, started in 1992, provides a Website with resources for teachers and 54 information on starting a Kindness Campaign. The World Centers of Compassion for Children International call attention to children’s rights and how to help the 55 victims of war. Starting a Peacemakers’ Club is a praiseworthy venture for a class and one that could spread to other classrooms and ideally affect the culture of the 56 entire school.
