What’s the importance of peace education? What’s the connection between peace and solidarity? In this episode we talk to Rebecca Petz, a German peace educator about her Christian upbringing, different types of peace and regional differences in solidarity.
My name is Rebecca Petz and the three words coming into my mind, when talking about the European Union are: Opportunity, responsibility, and peace: Opportunity to broaden your field of experiences to get to know new people and perspectives, responsibility to stand up for solidarity, for democracy and common values. And peace the main achievement of the European Union and positive peace the main objective of it. Peace on the one side and conflict on the other are the phenomena I am normally studying during my Master of Peace and Conflicts Studies in Magdeburg.
