As envisioned by peacebuilders for many years and as embodied in the U.S. Department of Peacebuilding legislation, we are on the verge of actualizing a “civilian Camp David” – a full residential Peacebuilding Center where communities go when something like Ferguson occurs and where there are peacebuilders ready, willing and able to work comprehensively to facilitate resolution and next steps.
Dot Maver is an educator and peacebuilder whose keynote is inspiring cooperation on behalf of the common good and whose involvement in peacebuilding has linked personal, community and international peacebuilding.
She, and the National Peace Academy USA (NPA), of which Dot is a founding trustee, with George Mason University (GMU) and its School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) are stepping into the future of peacebuilding together to expand Point of View (PoV), an international retreat and research center at GMU to include the Elise Boulding National Peace Academy House, where peacebuilders can hone their skills. (See http://scar.gmu.edu/point-of-view and www.nationalpeaceacademy.us) PoV will be dedicated in early 2016.
