    ICESCO Holds Workshop in Libya on Role of Transformative Education in Peacebuilding and Violence Prevention

    26 October 2022

    The Human and Social Sciences Sector of the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO), held a workshop on the role of transformative education in building peace, strengthening resilience and preventing violence in schools, in cooperation with the Libyan National Commission for Education, Culture and Science, and the University of Derna in Libya.
    The four-day workshop, whose proceedings kicked off on Monday, October 24, 2022, at the University of Derna, is aimed at introducing the audience to transformative education and enabling them to use its ability to transfer values, life skills and the principles of citizenship from school to the local environment and the real world, and identifying mechanisms for integrating issues related to peacebuilding, resilience and the prevention of violent extremism into cultural activities inside and outside schools.

    The opening saw the presence of the Secretary-General of the Libyan National Commission, members of the Commission, and the Rector of the University of Derna. Dr. Hassan El-Hajjami, Expert at ICESCO’s Human and Social Sciences Sector, and members of the Sector’s team represented the Organization at the workshop via videoconference. In his intervention, Dr. El-Hajjami emphasized that ICESCO is committed, through its various initiatives, to enhancing efforts and coordinating joint action to mobilize energies and competencies to eliminate violence and instill peace and stability in societies.

    He reviewed ICESCO’s major peacebuilding efforts, namely the establishment of the ICESCO Center for Civilizational Dialogue, the ICESCO Regional Center for Education on the Culture of Peace (CRECP) in Yamoussoukro, Côte d’Ivoire, the programme for the integration of ICESCO’s 360° peace approach in academia, and the Leadership Training in Peace and Security Programme (LTIPS).
