The prize is intended to celebrate and encourage individuals who embody the principles of peace, justice, and inclusion.

The Foundation defines peace education broadly. In their view, it encompasses a range of activities undertaken in a variety of settings designed to build thriving, engaged, inclusive, and collaborative communities:

  • Peace educators lead appropriate interventions to conflict by promoting inclusion, equity, reconciliation, and social justice. Peace educators strive to make inclusion and the appreciation of difference and diversity widely-embraced civic values and cultural norms.
  • Peace educators teach and develop curricula or learning programs which promote and model inclusion. They provide knowledge and leadership skills to build collaboration across difference and lead conflict resolution and transformation. They promote respect for human dignity, human differences, and human rights.
