Pasos Peace Museum and the International Institute on Peace Education are happy to welcome you to our annual spring symposium.

This year we will focus on the responses of peace educators and activists to the disasters and violence that the human family endures in these days of armed struggle and climate crisis. What have been the most promising responses and what are the potential actions through which civil society might work for greater human security in the processes of peacemaking and reconstruction?

We look forward to exploring these topics with you during this symposium to which you will be welcomed by Nitza Escalera, Assistant Dean at Fordham University School of Law and founder of Pasos Peace Museum.

The presentations by Amada Benavides of the Foundation for Peace Education, Colombia, Anita Yudkin Suliveres of the University of Puerto Rico, and Janet Gerson, of the International Institute on Peace Education and our discussions to follow will be chaired and facilitated by Betty Reardon, founder of the International Institute on Peace Education.

Sign in will open at 10 AM and the program will begin promptly at 10:30. You and your friends and colleagues are most welcome to join us just let us know how many you will be, so we can order enough lunch.
