Peace Jam!

If you’ve ever felt a call to help make the world a better place, Peace Jam is a great place to start!

You may have seen the bumper sticker “Think Globally; Act Locally.”  This course will show you how to do just that.  Using the case studies of a handful of Nobel Peace Prize winners, we will look closely at the work being done all over the world on issues like environmental justice, conflict resolution, ending racism and advancing women and children. But thinking globally only helps if we’re acting locally, and therefore we will also brainstorm ways to create local projects that address these global issues at their root causes and in meaningful ways, from right where you are.  
Join us this Winter Term:  Mondays and Wednesdays, 2-3:20 in 117 Lokey Education Building.  CRN 27142.
