Our Mission

The trend taken by the world to use force in resolving geo-political and social conflicts has rather directed civilization towards a warfare contest capable of destroying the world at any time.

Deeply concerned over the non-violent approach through education in its broadest sense, the International Association of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP) urges the creation of a new breed of scientists, philosophers, parents, students, all educators, and especially leaders who are inspired with the vision of restoring world peace.

IAEWP’s purpose is to contribute to the improvement of man’s ability to live at peace, to educate world citizens for peaceful co-existence and cooperation so that all people may have free access to the achievement of science and civilization.

Aims & Objectives

Our objectives can be summarized in three cardinal points:

  • to promote international understanding and world peace through education;
  • to protect the environment against all forms of pollution; and
  • to safeguard the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
