Is it possible for an education of peace in a country with constantly rising levels of violence? We will try to answer this question in our investigation. We will also analyze the law that will allow us to do viable proposals, and psychological and sociologic perspective for children and teenagers as well.
We will work with different alternatives or paths to decrease, or extinct violence.
