Join us for our 1st Brown Bag Lunch, led my Jingxin Bao!

The Preamble to the Constitution of UNESCO declares that “since wars begin in the minds of men (and women), it is in the minds of men (and women) that the defenses of peace must be constructed.” It is under this notion that education has a mission to empower individuals towards living together with our differences and achieving peace. In this interactive section, Jingxin Bao, a HGSE student who had worked with UNESCO, will share her experiences in teacher development for peace-building in Africa. Participants will be invited to several activities and discussions on facilitating social and emotional learning for peace-building in the classroom, as well as on adapting global citizenship education into local contexts.
