All of us would surely wish our children and future generations to be spared the effects of violent conflict and war - a poignant wish this year as we commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
To understand why conflict happens and the importance of reconciliation (both at a personal level and in the wider context) we can learn much from the work carried out over the years by the peace movement.
The Peace Museum has a unique collection of artefacts and information about the movement. A highly valuable resource for educational purposes, this is available to schools and colleges in education packages linked to the National Curriculum. School groups come to our gallery in the centre of Bradford, and our staff visit schools and colleges. We also create special exhibitions for display at venues in the UK and overseas.
We focus especially on the inspiration of international peacemakers, many of them Nobel Peace Laureates. The major role that women have made to peace is also emphasised.
With links to other museums and university departments here and abroad we are able to cover a wide range of topics including, for example, the prevention of ethnic conflicts, the threats posed by climate change and the use of sport in peacemaking.
Our key aim is to show young people that they can make a difference in the world by using their skills and talents in ways that suit them best. Help us motivate them.
