‘HWPL Peace Textbook’, a tool for spreading peace culture

‘HWPL Peace Textbook’, a tool for spreading peace culture

Even if you want to establish a peaceful world by passing on the culture of peace to future generations, you cannot pass it on if you do not know how to do so. If there are no examples of peace being achieved and no textbooks to learn about peace, peace becomes just a pipe dream and vapor in the air. However, the situation would be different if there were textbooks that explained what peace is, how to achieve peace and examples of how peace was achieved. Peace becomes a tangible reality that can be achieved. Also, belief and confidence that you can achieve it tags along. It was because of this natural order that HWPL was able to provide peace education. Worldwide peace education was made possible through peace textbooks containing an example of achieving peace as the answer to peace with the reason of all things. Teachers who encountered peace textbooks experienced hope. What content is contained in the HWPL peace textbook?
