Peace and Conflict Resolution/Prevention: More than Just Scholarships


Published on

Since the launch of Future Vision and the six areas
of focus the majority of global grants for peace and
conflict prevention/resolution (PCPR) have been for
scholarships. In an effort to expand the global grant
activity in PCPR, an idea exchange and workshop will
provide Rotarians an opportunity to brainstorm ideas
for projects they can do with their clubs and districts.
Rotarian Action Group for Peace members and Rotary
Peace Fellow alumni will facilitate the group activities.
