Empowering civic activism toward a culture of peace.
Offered by the National Peace Academy, the week-long Peacebuilding Peacelearning Intensive is designed for individuals and organizations looking to launch new peacebuilding and change initiatives or enhance existing efforts. Participants will be coached in the design and development of a strategic peacebuilding plan that they will take back to and implement in their community or initiate in an organization they already work with. The plan will be assessed and evaluated by instructors and peers, and the National Peace Academy will provide ongoing guidance for project development after completion of the Intensive.
The Peacebuilding Peacelearning Intensive is intended to advance the development of the full spectrum of knowledge, skills and capacities of the peacebuilder - inner and outer, personal and professional. In doing so it will provide a holistic introduction to the theory and practice of peacebuilding and will engage participants in cooperative learning experiences designed to empower citizens to critically inquire into what needs and conditions are necessary for assuring a sense of security personally and socially; to envision, plan and strategize for the establishment of a just and sustainable social, political and environmental order that assures each and every citizen is safe, secure and able to live with dignity; and to facilitate the individual and communal learning required to make such transformations possible.
