Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain Cultural Foundation has successfully completed the development of an exemplary curriculum on Just Peace, intending to teach it to students at various educational levels globally.
On the fifth of September, the Chairman of the Foundation, Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain, will travel to the United Nations headquarters in New York to present the exemplary curriculum. Experts in education and peace advocates from around the world, commissioned by the Foundation, have contributed to the creation of 17 course outlines. Mr. Abdulaziz Albabtain is scheduled to deliver a speech before the members of the United Nations General Assembly, where he will elaborate on the content of the courses, which fall under the theme "Culture of Peace for the Security of Future Generations."
The curriculum covers all educational stages, from preschool and school to university-level programs. Last September, Mr. Abdulaziz Albabtain had proposed the teaching of a global curriculum on Just Peace, a proposal that was welcomed and approved by the United Nations General Assembly members. Subsequently, the Foundation established an international committee to develop the required courses.
Regarding the model that the Foundation will present to the United Nations on the fifth of September, Mr. Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain stated, "Initially, we were delighted by the approval of the United Nations General Assembly for our previous proposal. We collaborated with devoted advocates of Just Peace worldwide who share the same goals as our Foundation in establishing the principles of just peace for the security of future generations." He continued, "The experts have worked on drafting 17 curricula outlines, and during our upcoming visit, we will present a model that includes fundamental principles for instilling a culture of peace in young minds from their early years. We hope that these courses will be accepted by the members of the United Nations General Assembly for implementation in student curricula worldwide."
