A Campaign to form community in schools of Peace minded people
What does "peace" mean for NNOMY?
Peace is not merely the absence of war or armed conflicts. It is instead the possibility of living in a society in which we can all develop to the full extent of our abilities, and in which social justice ensures our collective well-being.
Why "My Education for Peace"?
What does it mean to be a Student for Peace?
What does it mean to be a Teacher for Peace?
A Teacher for Peace is one who seeks to instill the importance of cooperation, respect for the other, and peaceful coexistence in their students, thus making it possible for them to have the tools necessary for choosing to build a future away from war and weapons. At NNOMY, we firmly believe that teachers are very influential figures in their students' lives. Because of that, we hope to form alliances that allow us all to build a peaceful society from within our classrooms.

What is Militarism?
We understand militarism as the imposition of values and dynamics inherent in military structures upon civil society, as well as their influence on state policy. It is a process that promotes hierarchy, as well as the use (and abuse) of power. Its propagation can use many compelling arguments, among them the need to instill military values on civilian society. Militarism carries with it consequences such as the loss of civil rights and the prioritization of expenditure on military projects over social ones, which hastens the deterioration of social services.
Why do we reject school militarization?
Through youth militarization and recruitment, the culture of war and violence is fostered in our schools; children and young people deserve a peaceful future, in which their options amount to much more than surviving armed conflicts that are fought for the economic interests of the few. We want to work towards a world free from war, which we believe possible if our efforts stem from peace education.
