Living into a dynamic European surrounding which expands both geographically and culturally it is imperative to stretch the cloak of harmonious coexistence between the different countries, religions, and cultures. However, the exponential eruption of conflicts within modern societies expose the deep roots conflicts have something that obstructs the peaceful coexistence among people.

Many studies conducted on how human beings construct their relation with the world demonstrate that peoples' perceptions and their way of thinking are influenced by the various cultural and intellectual systems where they are raised and identify themselves.


Our Proposal is based on the following premises:

- The inner knowledge that leads individuals to self- knowledge is complementary to the external knowledge of information and expertise

- These days the aforesaid balance of knowledge has been blatantly distracted

- "That since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed" (UNESCO, 1945).

- Peace, tolerance and all human values form the nucleus of human existence.

- An anthropocentric education program should be cultivated through experiential workshops


Our Proposal aims to generate novel education policies by advocating:

- The creation of a collaborative web consisted of organizations, agents and educators that will redefine the intercultural educational scheme

- The creation of joint experiential workshops focusing on the concept of internal knowledge (anthropocentric education)

- Investigating the causes of conflicts through various experimental tools and work towards bridging the gap between different cultures and scientific fields

- Finally, our Proposal refers to anyone interested on this research area; especially to students, instructors, and disadvantaged social groups.
