Become a peace-builder in hong kong

This fall, Branches of Hope and Sky School are collaborating to run a new course in Hong Kong. The course is called 'Peace-building in your community' and is designed for young refugees who want to become peace-builders. 

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 local area.


The course starts on 10 September, 2018. 

Students meet in person for four hours per week in person, and will study for several hours per week online.


The course will run for sixteen weeks.
