The webinar begins with Prof.Dhankar stating that in the current world where violence is preferred over rational argumentation, peace is a concern that is as important as online education in the changing context and hence the focus of the webinar is on peace education. Three levels of peace as per literature on Education for peace are discussed. The NCF 2005 and UNESCO'S booklet on Education for Peace and Sustainable Development are referred for the understanding of relation between the three levels of peace, i.e., individual, social within a nation/country, and international between nation-states. The speaker then explains four forms of manipulation that are detrimental to truth, justice and peace. The session concludes with Prof.Dhankar stating three requirements of peace education. In the end, participants and the speaker interact during the Q&A session.
