PeaceBuilders works with Primary schools in Edinburgh to develop a culture of peace and listening: nurturing environments that embody values and practices to support intrinsic motivation, welcome and take care of conflict constructively, and work together cooperatively.
Our cooperative games workshops are run in Edinburgh Primary schools, and support the Curriculum for Excellence Health and Wellbeing outcomes by developing children’s skills in; understanding self and others, managing emotions, communication, and dealing with conflict.
PeaceBuilders are an in-development collaborative team who work to to embody our purpose & values in the work that we offer; to practice what we preach as much as we are able.
