Practicum on Experiential Peacebuilding

Dates: January 2 – 11, 2015 (arrival on Jan. 1st)

Location: Piedras Blancas, Costa Rica Participants will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO)

 

What is it?

Designed for young professionals and students who want to get out of the classroom and apply their leadership and conflict resolution skills. PEP is a program that combines a unique outdoor experience with experiential learning techniques in a multicultural environment.

 

Resolving conflict needs a deep understanding of others and nature can create a safe space for experiencing different perspectives. Peace begins with me.

Birikit Terefe, 2013 PEP Participant from Ethiopia

 

What does the program include?

The 10-day experience will include hiking and backpacking through the Costa Rican rainforest, a homestay and service project with a local Costa Rican family, an overnight solo camping experience, waterfall rappel and conclude with a day at the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, U.N. mandated University for Peace, in Costa Rica. Along the journey participants will learn and practice leadership skills, challenge their own perspectives, explore relevant peacebuilding topics, and develop meaningful relationships with participants who share similar commitments to peace and human dignity.
