Like all other aspects of peace education, disarmament education can be for or about peace, or both.

From my personal point of view, Disarmaments education can be designed and implemented to serve both purposes – empowering learners with knowledge about disarmament issues and at the same time, guiding them to acquire the skills and competencies that can make them feel inclined to taking effective, proactive actions towards transformation the current reality of a militarised world to one in which there will be no need for weapons.

While teaching them the negative effects armed world is having on their world, they’d also be guided to discover what practical steps they can take to ensure the society is able to reduce the spread and use of arms by learning about existing international and local efforts which they can become part of.
