Beyond War's Education for a Peaceful World project offers webinars, education and workshops for organisers and people practicing the skills and theory of a Politics of Nonviolence. Organisers and community development workers require significant support as they become independent strategic thinkers, leaders and change makers. We have a small team of people carrying the wisdom of years of community based organising to share the skills, approaches, methods of group work, organising and strategy. 

Education for Peaceful World also carries out cross movement support in collaboration with the Wage Peace desk in supporting change - makers address civil liberties breaches and repression.
