The educational system in both parts of the island still promotes enemy stereotypes and does not prepare the youth for a reunification of the island and peaceful coexistence. Without reforms in the educational systems lasting peace and a smooth functioning of a reunified Cyprus will not be possible. The goal of the conference is to promote education for a Culture of Peace as a vehicle to bring structural changes and transformation to the Cypriot society across the divide.

The conference aims at bringing together educators from Europe and other parts of the world with a history of conflict, who are currently involved in peace projects. Furthermore, examples of projects and best practices will be shared and challenges as well as ways to overcome them will be discussed. The conference wants to connect the past with the future by building new innovative youth projects and wants to create an international network of people working for Education for a Culture of Peace.
