There are eight war museums in London. Anna Lubelska, founder of the global Peaceful Schools Movement and initiator of The Peace Building project, thinks London needs a peace museum to provide an alternative discourse, and champion the power of peace building.
It will be a place where we can build a global culture of peace. View a presentation below or view the full text on SlideShare.
The Peace Building is set be the first ever peace museum and education centre in London. It is currently in the planning stage and building is planned to commence in 2030.
In the meantime the team have created a Virtual Peace Building.
About Anna Lubelska
Anna is motivated by the horrendous wartime experiences of her Polish family. Touched very personally by the devastation of war; she has been an active international peace builder and advocate for all her adult life. Awarded the Medal of Gratitude by the European Solidarity Centre for her work on building and securing freedoms in Poland.
Anna is the founder of the global Peaceful Schools Movement – helping schools to create peace within and beyond the student community. Her book, ‘How to be a Peaceful School’, was published in 2018, and she now presents awards to participating schools; celebrating projects that effectively promote peace – both conceptually and practically. Her next step in the journey towards a peaceful world will be the establishment of The Peace Building in London. A global center of excellence in peace education.
