WW1 – ‘Wales for Peace’ project

06 / 03 / 2014

Over the next four years, the nation will join in commemorating the First World War.

The impact of the War on communities and families was devastating. How were our communities affected, and how have people in Wales contributed to peace – locally, nationally and globally?

Using the First World War as a starting point, Cymru dros Heddwch / Wales for Peace will enable people across Wales to explore and share our heritage of peace over the past 100 years.

Whether through the life stories of famous figures such as Lord David Davies or the hidden histories of individuals or organisations who have worked to overcome conflict in our communities, the project aims to explore how people in Wales today relate to this past, and how it affects their feelings about war and bringing about peace.

The Heritage Lottery Fund is funding the WCIA to develop Cymru dros Heddwch / Wales for Peace into a full project by June 2014. 

We’re keen to ensure that the project meets the needs of the curriculum, teachers and learners.
