The Ten Storey Clock Tower

A free Theatre of Peace resource for schools to celebrate National Storytelling Week

To celebrate National Storytelling Week we are offering this free book and recording to any school in the world that wants it. For free. For everyone. Forever.

The story has been written by Roy Leighton as a resource for schools in the U.K. and globally who have been part of the peace education research conducted by Roy with Professor Hilary Cremin (Head of the faculty of education at Cambridge University) and colleagues at Cambridge University Press and Assessment.

The purpose of the story is to provide an introduction to the archetypes of the Peacebuilder, the vocabulary of the Peace Matrix and the process of personal and collective transformation.
