100-Day Countdown to the UN International Day of Peace
The UN has dedicated the 2015 International Day of Peace to "Partnerships for Peace -- Dignity for All." The Summer of Peace leading up to September 21st gives us the opportunity to move from concern about the great challenges facing our world to taking a stand on Peace Day as one human community united in hope. We will discuss plans at the United Nations and around the world to highlight the actions of people serving a wide range of causes yet building together a new culture of peace.
This session includes a performance of Rev. Patrick McCollum's "Peace Violin." To download a recording of the Violin at high fidelity, click here.
Translating Peace Education into Community Peacebuilding
At the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding, Educating for Peace translates as educating for living in harmonious relationship with self, others and all life. In order to educate, or draw forth, a culture of peace in community, everyone is recognized as a peacebuilder capable of realizing harmony through conflict. Everyone learns to resolve conflict through healthy communication in relationships, thus breaking the cycle of violence and building a safer community. Peace Education in Community includes social emotional learning and restorative practices, and begins with personal practices of peace.
