Learning to Live Together: Building skills, values, and attitudes for the 21st Century
This study represents an attempt to interpret the aim of "learning to live together" as a synthesis of many related goals, such as education for peace, human rights, citizenship, and health-preserving behaviours. It focuses on specifically the skills, values, attitudes, and concepts needed for learning to live together, rather than on "knowledge" objectives. The aim of the study is to discover "what works" in terms of helping students learn to become politely assertive rather than violent; to understand conflict and its prevention; to become mediators; to respect human rights; to become active and responsible members of their communities—as local, national, and global citizens; to have balanced relationships with others; and neither to coerce others nor be coerced, especially into risky health behaviours. Includes case studies and lessons learned.
