Ceeds of Peace – Raising Peacebuilders webmaster
Ceeds of Peace is a 360º approach to raising peacebuilding leaders. We support and build bridges between families, community leaders and educators to share resources and develop action plans to strengthen our communities and improve our children’s lives.
Imagine if we were to plant these “C”eeds of Peace around children and youth, and cultivate these skills in the adults who interact with them at home, in schools, and in the community, wrapping them in the practice of these skills everyday?
Ceeds of Peace provides teachers, parents and all adults the tools, workshops, action plans and support they need to learn critical leadership and peacebuilding skills, so they can then teach and practice them in their interactions with children and youth to raise a generation of peacebuilders.
“The Ceeds of Peace Tool Kit has wonderful tools that I can immediately apply to students and my own children.”
Teacher & Parent, Workshop 2014
“It has made me aware of how peace can be addressed from a young age and how critical it can become later in life.”
For our family it has helped create an environment where we can communicate openly and resolve our conflicts positively and with greater ease. At work, it has been invaluable in terms of getting different people with different backgrounds to resolve issues with concrete strategies.”
“As an educator, Ceeds of Peace workshops have connected me to people, ideas, and experiences that are extremely valuable both in the classroom and out in the community. These phenomenal workshops have helped me self-reflect on my responsibility as an early educator and take action as a peaceful global citizen.”
Naomi Rombaoa Tanaka, Educator
“Ceeds of Peace helped me to think clearly, gain public speaking experience, be less nervous about job interviews, and made me a more mature woman overall.”
