In this paper we want to discuss peace education and preparedness for the future in the Swedish schools during the 1980s. This is a part of a wider research application with a longer time perspective from the 1880s to 2000. Our aims are two-folded. On one hand we want to study how different participants worked together with regard to implementing peace education in schools. On the other hand, this paper will focus on what picture of the future these sources visualize and how the schools are supposed to handling questions of war and peace and the fear of young people. The content of the history subject is of special interest.
