It takes a village to raise a child!
The Peaceful Neighbourhood project was derived from the Peaceful School program, which teaches children a range of social and civic competences such as solving conflict situations, bridging differences, and taking responsibility for their communities. The Peaceful Neighbourhood initiative takes the principles from the school-level programme and expands it to a neighbourhood level.
The project works with key people and organisations that are in contact with children, for example sports coaches, shop owners, police officers, playground management, social workers, librarians and parents.
In 2018, The Hague neighbourhoods Vrederust and Kortenbos joined the Peaceful Neighbourhood initiative. Other neighbourhoods in The Hague may follow.
