If you do not go back in time, understand the process how will your students have the depth of knowledge to do something about war in our time. We did not do that or hold our people accountable for knowing the history of war and how to stop war before they were elected.

Once upon a time a long long time ago people learned to count, to write, to form social groups, to use the wheel, to add metal to the rim of that wheel and war was born along with the chariot.

go to ahaafoundation.org scroll down and on the left you might find the map page for Istanbul an way to tell the story of blood across the earth.

I have just returned from hospital.I am working in the field of PEACE for last more than two decades. But slow realisation is coming to me that hardly anyone is prepare to adopt PEACE POWER. Almost every one is for VIOLENT POWER not knowing that only PEACE POWER can conquer every thing in life and the world.For this my two books 1)Peace Technology2) Peace TimeCalendar are unwanted. That is why I want to sell the copyright of my two books.The life and world is miserable today because most of us depend on VIOLENT POWER.All these social networkings are virtual as PEACE POWER has not given its due position.
I think in this life I will not be able to influence the humanity to adopt PEACE POWER as a tool of growth and development.I propose to retire.

I'm working with my school's Global Awareness task force to take a lot of really good international connections and projects (and some gaps that exist) and bring them under a more intentional vision of global awareness at a curricular level. Looking forward to good conversation on the topic.

Glad to be part of the global awareness group. I am working oçn a project on intergrating global education into the ESL/EFL curriculum in secondary schools in Cameroon. I welcome contributions from this group.

I would like to see student/teacher collaboration on the topic: How does where you live affect the way you live? I think that having students discuss/research this subject with peers would be helpful for all involved to get an idea that Americans are not the only humans inhabiting the earth. :)

Hi all,

All of the global awareness curricula being posted on this group are outstanding! I am very impressed. I too have a program I'd like to share with you - it is called Sit for Good, and is a campaign sponsored by Building Tomorrow (a non-profit that fosters philanthropy among students by raising awareness and funds for the construction of schools in Uganda.) Sit for Good is a K-12 service learning program that informs students about educational inequalities that exist throughout the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. Building Tomorrow provides curriculum materials, activity ideas, and discussion topics, as well as the resources needed to partake in a fundraiser for schools in Uganda. It really is an innovative program, and instills a sense of global citizenship in the students, as they are raising money for the students that they are learning about in class.

I encourage you to visit www.buildingtomorrow.org and www.sitforgood.org for more information. You can also shoot me an email at allison@buildingtomorrow.org if you have any questions!

The global awareness now should focus more on grassroots level than delivering only at macro-level.Demonstration projects be taken up thinking globally and acting locally. From play school level education be restructured with the cutting edge of learning life-skills linked to peace & sustainability. Matter-Energy relationship may be one of the topics to be included in the curricula in simple language so that the kids from the beginning of their lives learn positives of use of Matter & Energy, so that when they grow up they use and innovate lifes's requirements sustainably and peacefully. Lessons of Ethics and Morality also form part of curricula for the kids so that they imbibe all humanitarian qualities.With such ideas, the world will change towards creating a qualitative living environment.

Teaching true globalisation is the challenge today. Adopting PEACE as the base of Teacing Globalisation will ONLY enable the humans to learn true lessons of Globalisation to restore Biosphere Peace as well as Human Peace. I hope GEC will promote this concept/Idea.
