Why there is a need to include module on peace education in NSTP?

Philippine Society of NSTP Educators and Implementers officially adopts GPFF's Peace

Education Module for NSTP.

More than 245 National Service Training Program (NSTP) facilitators, directors and educators

concluded the “National Training for NSTP Trainors on the Implementation of Common

Modules” by adapting GPFF’s proposed Peace Education Module among higher education

institutions, colleges and universities in the Philippines, as their final output.

he final output is declared by Dr. Florida Labuguen, Philippine Society of NSTP Educators and

Implementers, Inc. (PSNEI) President, during the Workshop on the Preparation of Peace Module

held on June 2, 2011 at the Conference Hall of University of the East-Manila. PSNEI is the

organization responsible for the implementation of the National Service Training Program which

includes Peace Education as one of its eight dimensions.


“We are, therefore, adapting the Peace Module content created by GPFF,” Dr. Labuguen

disclosed among the educators, after the workshop leaders handed their written strategies and

expected outputs to Mr. James Flynn, GPFF-International Vice President and also the Resource

Speaker of the event.

Prior to the conclusion, educators listened attentively as Mr. Flynn discussed the contents of the

proposed Peace Module content which composed of three contents: Our Common Identity:

Conflict Resolution and Peace-building; Human Rights are Endowed to the People; and, A

Culture of Peace Through Service. The module also includes interactive exercises and discussion

questions which the Filipino youth, specifically college students, can embrace, comprehend and

practice.

“Mr. Flynn’s presentation of the Peace Education Module content is very timely. Ever since,

PSNEI has been working on a 25-hour common set of modules towards a more effective and

efficient implementation of NSTP,” Dr. Carlo John Vidal, Secretary of PSNEI, told GPFF-

Philippines in an interview.


Through the acknowledgement of PSNEI, GPFF Peace Education Module will be adapted and

utilized for the Peace Education curriculum starting off on the first semester of the Academic

Year 2011-2012, by more than 100 colleges and universities in the Philippines.
