Ploughshares Calgary maintains a library of books and films on subjects like nuclear abolition, peace and faith, nonviolence and bullying. We can also provide speakers or assist in finding other resources on these topics.
We have released a series of six videos on various issues: climate change, nuclear disarmament, nonviolence, global cooperation, and unarmed civilian protection. Please check them out and share around!
We also have a subcommittee, Educators for Peace & Justice, that host monthly meetings. You can find them on Facebook or here on our website!
In September 2021 Ploughshares Calgary and Educators for Peace & Justice realeased a Peace Education Guide. This document was created to help teachers implement Peace Education in Alberta schools. This Guide is not just theoretical, but includes quick actionable items that can be applied right away.
You can access the Peace Education Guide here: Peace Education – A Guide to Action in Alberta Schools
