THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATORS FOR WORD PEACE
The International Association
of Educators for World Peace (IAEWP) is a not-for-profit, non-political, and a non-governmental organization geared towards
the attainment of international understanding and world peace through education. IAEWP operates as an NGO under the mandate
of the United Nations. We have more than 100 chapters established throughout the world.
In 1973, the Association became a non-governmental
organization of both the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It also became a part of the United Nations
Department of Public Information (UNDPI).
In 1990, we became officially linked with
the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Conference on Environmental Development (UNCED).
In 1987, the UN Secretary General Javier
Perez de Cuellar, designated IAEWP as a Peace Messenger of the world on behalf of the UN General Assembly in recognition of
significant contributions made to the program and objectives of the 1986 International Year of Peace.
IAEWP's purpose is to contribute to the
improvement of man's ability to live at peace, to educate world citizens for peaceful co-existence and cooperation so that
all people may have free access to the achievement of science and civilization.
The basic dimensions of our philosophy
are a firm belief in peace and confident steps to achieve a new era of world peace. The aim of our philosophy is to create
a sort of action that will move all nations firmly along the pathway of peace.
