A Global Moment in Time: Peace and Justice
January 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
This hybrid Global Moment in Time special initiative includes a virtual component in Fall 2021 and an in-person component in Spring 2023. Both components will examine ways to build peace and justice at local and regional levels around the world. Participants will learn how leaders and organizations in the United States actively engage in mediating disputes arising from political, socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, and regional differences. They will explore conflict resolution methods and strategies for directing positive political, social, and economic change in a democratic society. Participants will examine and share essential leadership skills needed to balance divergent social demands and interests when confronting political, social, and economic challenges. They will explore the skills necessary to participate effectively in international fora to end conflict, promote justice, and sustain peace. The project will include a series of interactive dialogues, a global virtual summit on Peace and Justice, and an action planning session. Participants will contribute to a joint visual presentation – as a digital or print publication – that amplifies their involvement in peace and justice activities in their communities.
