"In a constantly changing world we need more than ever to understand the notions of peace and the meaning of peace" - Magdalena C. Butucea, Founder of the Peace Museum Valcea Romania.
The main purpose of setting up the Peace Museum of Vâlcea Romania - the widest possible dissemination of information on the concept of peace and peace education. Peace education is the study of peace and conflicts. To international level, peace is a very complex process involving the application of certain diplomatic levers in order to avoid organized armed conflicts.
OBJECTIVES FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PEACE MUSEUM VALCEA ROMANIA:
1) Explaining the terms specific to peace education;
2) Understanding the notion of peace and the opposite;
3) Identification and study of peace strategies;
4) Developing the pacification project as a civilization project;
5) Practicing the capacity to act in a pacifist spirit;
6) Constructive conflict resolution.
After its establishment, the museum will enter in the international Hague-based world peace museums.
THE NEED FOR ESTABLISHING PEACE MUSEUM VALCEA ROMANIA
In a rule of law, it is absolutely necessary to know the fundamental notions of peace and their practice, especially by the younger generation (students) as well as local communities and the importance of peace, even if we do not live in a conflict area. We need to teach the younger generation to become a peace-maker.
Peace education is an effective way of eliminating aggression, violence, and terrorism in the world.
Without peace there is no development, without development there is no human rights.
Now we are seeing the international public opinion of the defense of peace by eliminating hunger and poverty and implementing sustainable social and economic programs that contribute in the long run to the cultural and economic development of individuals.
