Become a peace-builder in Chios, greece

The course explores ways you can build peace in your communities, through learning about issues relating to peace and exploring the reasons for conflicts on a local and global level. You will also devise and conduct an activity to contribute to building peace in your community.

Deadline to apply: 6 July, 2018.

The course starts on 11 July, 2018. 

Students meet in person for six hours per week, usually during two or three sessions.
