The 2015 International Institute on Peace Education (IIPE) was hosted by The University of Toledo from July 26-August 2, 2015.   The 2015 IIPE explored the theme of “Education for Urban Renewal toward Social & Ecological Justice: Peace Education in an Era of Globalization.”  60 academics, formal and non-formal educators and activists representing 18 countries came to Toledo to participate in the week-long event exploring the role of peace education in addressing issues of urban decline and the interconnected dilemmas of poverty, violence, health, and environmental degradation in an era of unprecedented economic globalization. The IIPE provided a constructive process model and interactive space through which these issues were explored toward the identification and development of strategies and methods to address them.  Click here for background information about IIPE 2015.
