  • Transcript

    • 1. BUILDING A BETTER WORLD, WITH A CULTURE OF PEACE A VISION WITH HUMANE VALUES AND PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION
    • 2. A CONCEPTUAL MAP
      • What is a Conceptual Map? This is a question I'm going to answer in more detail with specific peace examples – to add to our big picture perspective.
      • A conceptual map, broadly defined, presents the relationships among a set of connected concepts and ideas. It is a tangible way to display how your mind  "sees" a particular topic. By constructing a concept map, you reflect on what you know and what you don't know.

    • 6. “ BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN OTHERS” Gandhi
      • Note 1 – Peace Practitioners are “thwarted” when they do not act on their values (eg. By being perceived to act violently, damaging relationships, etc.).
      • The burden is on Peace Practitioners to dispel confusion and communicate clearly.
      • We do this through our behaviour. We are more successful when we ‘walk the talk’, ‘be peace’ = Peace starts with me.
      • “ Being Peace ” by Thich Nhat Hanh http:// www.peace.ca/beingpeace.htm
    • 7.  
    • 8. THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS: DANGER AND OPPORTUNITY
      • Note 2 – We need a new leadership ideal:
        • Corrupt, unjust, exploitative, lying, violent, cowardly leaders are to be shunned;
        • Replaced by honest, just, truthful, transparent, non-violent, brave, competent, committed, servant leaders = truly ‘public servants’ with a social purpose.
        • No more hypocrisy = ‘walk the talk’
      • Our responsibility for shared leadership.
    • 9. THE ‘AHA’ MOMENT:
      • EDUCATION = EMPOWERMENT
      • LEADERSHIP = EMPOWERMENT
      • EDUCATION = LEADERSHIP
      • This is why it is so important to study leadership and peace psychology.
    • 10. LEADERSHIP AND PEACE RECOMMENDED READING:

    • 13. SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE:
      • These two words succinctly and clearly capture the essence of the purpose of peace education and the Culture of Peace Program
      • Social Intelligence by its nature works to change behaviours, forge values and incite institutional transformations from the current culture of war and violence to a Culture of Peace and Non-violence.
      • Social Intelligence is readily understandable, acceptable and supportable by most Canadians.

      • "Leaders only change because they either see the light or feel the heat." Martin Luther King Jr.
      • Emphasize the positive, asset building – not the negative, criticism, divisive (needs based)‏
      • Balance personal growth, growth in others, organizational growth, worldly growth (“Put your mask on first before helping others.”)‏

    • 24. CONCLUSION (cont.)‏
      • Future generations need us to work together, in a much larger way, to build a significant network and effective strategy to de-escalate violence through education and prevention, at home and abroad.
