The Peace in Europe and Asia through Global Citizenship Education (PEACE) Programme is a trimester secondary school exchange program between countries in Europe and Asia which is centered on the themes of global and active citizenship education.
In the three-month exchange programme, students (15-18 years) live with host families, attend school and engage in local community activities while enhancing their knowledge and understanding to become active global citizens. As global citizens, PEACE programme participants advocate peace while they take on independent projects with the theme, ”Global Citizenship in You” (GC in You). Participants also take on Active Projects which involve a minimum of 10 hours of community service of their choice during their exchange
