If you are a student or a staff member looking to build peace in your community or if you are a teacher wanting to support whole school spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, INSPIRE can help!
INSPIRE believes that schools can transform communities and we want to help you share your learning!
To start with, we are asking schools to sign up to the INSPIRE Peace Charter. Using the provided resources we want you to debate, discuss and negotiate the charter’s values then use this learning as the basis for creating your schools’ shared pledges for peacebuilding; you can look on the resource page for ideas on projects that will help you turn your pledges into actions. Download and find out how to use the peace charter to create your shared pledges and project ideas here.
We want you to start these discussions now so that you can share either your pledges, projects and ideas by holding or being part of an INSPIRE event. Find out more about holding an event here.
We will continue to add to our resources page where you can access practical ideas and materials from the nation’s leading peace and reconciliation organisations, for you to use in your school. These will include primary and secondary aged resources for subjects such as RE and History, assemblies, tutor groups as well as supporting your work with: SMSC, well-being, PSHE and Citizenship.
We know that by standing together, empowering resilient young people who seek to listen and understand, who pursue dialogue and reconciliation, we can create communities of inclusion where collectively we combat issues such as fear, isolation, bullying and extremism.
