Educating for Peace, Justice and Planetary Care With Rev Dr Leonisa Ardizzone (retreat/workshop)
December 3, 2021 - December 5, 2021$200
December 3 – 5, 2021
Join Rev Dr. Leonisa Ardizzone for an immersive and dialogical weekend exploration into the values and practices of Peace Education for educators, administrators, community organizers, religious educators, local leaders, and activists.
Peace Education seeks to transform our current culture of violence—including injustice, unequal opportunity, racism, and poverty—into a culture of peace, a system that values human rights, justice, and dignity. Over the course of the weekend, using peace education methodology, we will dig into concepts of violence and peace, the core values of Peace Education, and methods of exploring these themes with our constituent populations.
We will begin with a relaxed evening program that allows us to get centered and share our expectations for the weekend. We will also examine these questions: What is peace? What does peace look like to me? What are we up against? How do we define violence and peace (and why do we choose to define them that way)? As the weekend unfolds we will:
- Explore how we help ourselves and others see the manifestations and “roots” of violence
- Examine the three core values of Peace Education—Global Citizenship, Planetary Stewardship, Humane Relationship—as well as other big ideas
- Imagine another world through storytelling, music-making, and creating art
- Discuss how to incorporate Peace Education into your setting
