    It was an idea born out of the Interfaith Cooperation Forum. The first School of Peace was held in Bangalore, India in 2006. The School of Peace aims to build a community of young people from different faith or religious traditions, and encourage them to promote harmony and peace in their respective communities. School of Peace is a seminar-workshop cum skills training that accommodates 15-20 young adults, especially those from conflict-stricken areas. They are invited to come together to share their struggles and visions of peace from their different faith perspectives, as well as learn some theories and skills in peacebuilding and related subjects. The ICF puts on workshops to support alumni of the school of peace in sharing the message of justpeace in their communities.
