aces: Call for project proposals open until 30 April 2010!


Topic: “Create your solutions! Dealing with conflicts in schools and our surroundings”

Where people live or work together conflicts arise on a daily basis. Sometimes they have positive effects: e.g. when they contribute to clarifying issues. The challenge, however, is to deal with these conflicts in a constructive and non-violent manner. Therefore, and in view of the approaching end of the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World, the overall theme of the 2010 project competition is “Create your solutions! Dealing with conflicts in schools and our surroundings”.

Before you can apply, you have to find a project partner school. Once you have found a partner, you jointly develop your project idea and formulate your project proposal. The proposal for a school partnership project must be submitted by using the online-application form.

Full information on the contest as well as the application documents are available at
The deadline for submission of project proposals is 30 April 2010.
