Navigating Disarmament Education: The Peace Boat Model

Oct 28, 2020

With 37 years of experience in coordinating people-to-people exchange via voyages on a passenger ship, Peace Boat has implemented various disarmament education programmes over the past decades. We are proud to announce the release of a publication with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs introducing Peace Boat’s methodology for disarmament education, which directly stems from lessons learned through implementation of various disarmament education programmes. The publication also discusses how disarmament education should be implemented in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how digital technologies can be leveraged to provide a fruitful experience for participants.

The UN Office for Disarmament Affairs publishes the “Civil Society and Disarmament” series in the context of General Assembly resolution 73/79. For more information, please see
