Video: Education is the Way to Plant the Seeds of Peace
13 Sep 2014
Our Face to Faith schools programme, designed for 12-17 year olds, is already active in more than 30 countries around the world. Our latest video looks at how this programme is educating young people with the knowledge and skills to resist extremist voices, and is providing opportunities for students to have positive exposure to other religious and cultural perspectives.
Educating the next generation is the way to plant the seeds of peace.
"Where there is ignorance there is usually fear, and where there is fear there can often be conflict. By contrast, where there is knowledge there is often understanding, and where there is understanding there can be peace...Educating the next generation is the way to plant the seeds of peace." - Tony Blair
