The South African DEPA team hosted an impactful Teachers Workshop aimed at educators teaching Life Orientation in low-income schools. The focus was squarely on a crucial, yet often overlooked, subject: teaching peace in the classroom. Through interactive sessions, teachers and DEPA experts engaged in a dynamic exchange of experiences and strategies. The outcome of this workshop was a collaboratively developed framework that provided actionable, practical methods for incorporating peace education into the classroom setting. Ideas ranged from curriculum adjustments to hands-on activities designed to foster empathy and mutual respect among students. The Teachers Workshop serves as an essential stepping stone in the journey towards a more peaceful educational environment. By equipping educators with the tools and knowledge to teach peace effectively, DEPA aims to sow the seeds of change from the ground up, starting in the classroom.
