One way to promote peace is to lead a team. Styles that reproduce patterns of conflict are challenged and exchanged for more appropriate styles of leadership.
After 70 years of development, we have more poverty and instability, and fewer resources. Why have we failed and what is needed for sustainable global prosperity?
In view of the current crises of governance and citizen participation, we will learn the new principles and models required to build new sociopolitical alternatives.
Aggression is not essential to the human condition, but rather cultural and avoidable. We will study major current trends towards peace and some of the means required to build it.
Without human rights there can be no peace. New concepts and tools in line with the principles of universality and inclusion are required to ensure the rights of all.
Conflicts must not only be resolved, but also prevent, transformed and remediated. We critically examine and replace common assumptions/actions for conflict management.
Teachers should not only transmit the current culture, but also transform it. We will learn strategies for training students to be agents of social transformation.
Families are the bedrock of society, but to what degree do they promote a culture of peace? This series strengthens the family’s role as a seedbed for the future builders of a new world.
Social change starts with individuals: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." We will learn to management our time and our life more effectively promote socio-cultural change.
Building a culture of peace requires agents of social change in all fields of endeavor. This course develops skills to facilitate a process of replication and multiplication.
