Resource Title

Sowing Seeds of Peace


A Global Citizenship Education resource on hunger as a consequence of war.

Afri stands for Action from Ireland. It’s goal is the promotion of global justice and peace, and the reduction of poverty. This includes, but is not limited to, the progressive reduction of global militarisation and responding to the threat of climate change, corporate control of resources and water, and interference with food sovereignty. Sowing Seeds of Peace represents not only an important contribution to any discussion on how we achieve a sustainable future, but it also fills a significant gap in the material available on obstacles to development and the future of our planet.

This resource is for post primary school teachers who wish to facilitate understanding of the interconnection between war and hunger. The Resource itself is divided into several sections, beginning with an exploration of the importance of the United Nations. Other themes covered include the Sustainable Development Goals.

Afri has added a ‘missing goal’ to the 17 – that is ‘Abolish War and end the Arms Industry’. This ’added goal’ would also form an interesting topic for discussion among students using the resource. Topics also include:

  • Proxy Wars;
  • Consequences of war;
  • Food Insecurity;
  • war and world hunger
  • and very importantly, links between War and Hunger.

Sowing Seeds of Peace is the final chapter and this may be the most important of all as following on from awareness arises the need to take action.
