What is Peace Generation?

Peace Generation Indonesia, or Peacegen, social enterprise that works on Peace Education. We focus on Peace Education Development Training, Peace Learning Media Development,  campaign and activate peace content. We are committed to promoting peace through creative and playful media. 

Our Story

Founded in 2007 by two men from vastly different backgrounds but with a common passion, Peace Generation Indonesia serves a key role in promoting peace through creative media. Irfan Amalee, an Indonesian Muslim, has been involved in media creation and publishing for ten years, and Eric Lincoln, an American Christian, has been a teacher and a drug prevention counselor in Chicago US for many years. Despite their different backgrounds, Irfan and Eric shared a common interest in promoting peace and bridging the gap between different communities through peaceful relationships amongst the younger generation because many violent conflicts are started through a lack of understanding. 

Problem We Address

In the national and regional context, Indonesia has several inter-religious conflicts such as the Muslim-Christian conflicts in Ambon and Poso where many people were killed resulting in trauma and devastating effects on social and economic life. In the last decade, Indonesia also has faced the issue of terrorism caused by an increase in radical Islamic movements. Apart from the religious conflict, according to data from Indonesia Children Protection Commission there are 780,000 cases of violence every year in schools all over Indonesia.

 

Solution We Offer

It is very rare that organizations become concerned about providing peace education materials. After considering this fact, the Peace Generation focused its work on developing creative peace education materials for use in schools and community groups. Through a partnership with one of the largest Muslim publishers in Indonesia and aid organizations, the modules were widely implemented. The peace program was first implemented in the Indonesian province of Aceh where conflict had been occurring for years when UNICEF invited Peace Generation to train their workers. Strong recommendations by national Muslim leaders and the Department of Education plus positive media coverage and several awards have thrust Peace Generation into the limelight. Currently, more than 30,000 people have learned peace education modules in four different countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Australia. 

 

Our Belief

Peace Generation believes that conflict prevention is as important as conflict resolution in making peace in the world since the latest data shows that 90% of current conflicts are a reoccurrence of previous conflicts and only 10% are actually new conflicts. This data indicates that most conflicts are passed from generation to generation.
