Peace x Peace / Thailand
26 June - 5 July 2019
Every day, conflict dominates the headlines. Peace by Peace will focus on the opposite. As a UWC student-led initiative, the short course looks to explore what it means to take a step further away from conflict. The ten-day short course will look at peace on different levels within our society, from peace on a personal level to peace amongst nations. Specifically, we aim to cover the following topics:
- Interstate & Intercultural Conflict
- Governments & Their Actions
- Migration & Refugees
- Social Constructs & Social Justice
- Personal Peace
In a world constantly facing conflict, it is important that we rise to the challenge and attempt to bring about change in our local communities. Peace by Peace strives to bring people together to explore ways in which each individual can contribute to the idea of peace, on any scale, in any cultural context.
