The project “systemic UPscaling of Peace Education pRactices – UPPER”, aims at bringing the values of peace, intercultural dialogue and civic participation to the core of educational policies and school practices, with the objective of producing significant improvements in learning life skills for youngsters living in Europe. 

The project, funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union, has been developed by a partnership coordinated by the Fondation des Régions Européennes pour la Recherche, l’Éducation et la Formation (FREREF) and which includes the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), the Ministry of Education and Employment of Malta (MEDE), the European School Heads Association (ESHA) and the International Institute of Humanitarian Law (IIHL). 

The project proposes an analytical review of good practices on peace education worldwide, suggesting a comparative approach for public policies and good practices at school level and promotes the establishment of the “Education inspiring peace Lab”, a permanent international laboratory in Sanremo (Italy) to enhance research, policy collaboration and cross-country uptake and mainstreaming of good practice elements.
