This week and for the next ten weeks, ELIX’s p^2 multispace will host the “Peace Building in your Community” course.
This course, provided in English, is organized by Sky School and will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00 to 13:00, in the meeting room of the ELIX p^2 multispace
The participants should be 16 to 26 years old.
The objective of this course is to explore ways in which we can build peace in our communities. The participants will first learn about issues relating to peace and will explore the reasons for conflicts on local and global level. They will then learn about approaches to resolve conflicts and will gain skills in communication, listening and facilitation. Finally, they will plan and conduct an activity to contribute to building peace in your community.
At the end of this course, the participants should become effective peacebuilders and join the community of young peacebuilders around the world. Moreover, they will improve their ability to write and communicate in English, but also to develop skills in peace theory, project management, collaboration and communication.
This course is the equivalent of a pre-university high school level course. Please note that this is a stand-alone course and will not lead to a full high school diploma. Nevertheless, the participants will receive a certificate in Peace Building from Sky School, in partnership with UWC South East Asia, an international school in Singapore.
