Many Italian and international documents, such as the School Italian National Programs 2012 and 2018, the IGU Charter on Geographical Education (2016), the Lucerne Declaration on Geographical Education for Sustainable Development (2007) and the Rome Declaration on Geographical Education in Europe (2013), underline the role and the importance of Geography in the development of abilities and competences of the “future citizens”: it is a geography that puts children and students in action, with a very practical proposal finalized to develop an involvement in the aware citizenship. This paper resumes some characteristics and theoretical bases of the CISV Project (Children’s International Summer Villages, now CISV International - Building global friendship) and discusses a proposal about specific geographical activities finalized to experiment situations that connect environmental situations to decisions and perspectives of local communities. This approach pushes children to choose and analyze the different consequences of their ideas and peace solutions, in the context of an active didactics of geography.
