  • Building A Better World

    1. 1. BUILDING A BETTER WORLD, WITH A CULTURE OF PEACE A VISION WITH HUMANE VALUES AND PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION
    2. 2. A CONCEPTUAL MAP <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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  &quot;sees&quot; a particular topic. By constructing a concept map, you reflect on what you know and what you don't know. </li></ul>
    3. 6. “ BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN OTHERS” Gandhi <ul><li>Note 1 – Peace Practitioners are “thwarted” when they do not act on their values (eg. By being perceived to act violently, damaging relationships, etc.). </li></ul><ul><li>The burden is on Peace Practitioners to dispel confusion and communicate clearly. </li></ul><ul><li>We do this through our behaviour. We are more successful when we ‘walk the talk’, ‘be peace’ = Peace starts with me. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Being Peace ” by Thich Nhat Hanh http:// www.peace.ca/beingpeace.htm </li></ul>
    4. 8. THE LEADERSHIP CRISIS: DANGER AND OPPORTUNITY <ul><li>Note 2 – We need a new leadership ideal: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Corrupt, unjust, exploitative, lying, violent, cowardly leaders are to be shunned; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Replaced by honest, just, truthful, transparent, non-violent, brave, competent, committed, servant leaders = truly ‘public servants’ with a social purpose. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No more hypocrisy = ‘walk the talk’ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our responsibility for shared leadership. </li></ul>
    5. 9. THE ‘AHA’ MOMENT: <ul><li>EDUCATION = EMPOWERMENT </li></ul><ul><li>LEADERSHIP = EMPOWERMENT </li></ul><ul><li>EDUCATION = LEADERSHIP </li></ul><ul><li>This is why it is so important to study leadership and peace psychology. </li></ul>
    6. 10. LEADERSHIP AND PEACE RECOMMENDED READING: <ul><li>The Leadership Bibliography </li></ul><ul><li>Servant Leadership </li></ul><ul><li>Self Leadership </li></ul><ul><li>The Leader Within </li></ul><ul><li>Leadership & Peace Powerpoint </li></ul><ul><li>www.peace.ca/peaceleader.htm </li></ul><ul><li>www.peace.ca/servantleadership.htm </li></ul><ul><li>www.peace.ca/selfleadership.htm </li></ul><ul><li>www.peace.ca/leaderwithin.htm </li></ul><ul><li>www.peace.ca/LEADERSHIP%20IN%20TRANSFORMATION%20OF%20THE%20PEACE%20PROFESSION.ppt </li></ul>
    7. 13. SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE: <ul><li>These two words succinctly and clearly capture the essence of the purpose of peace education and the Culture of Peace Program </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Social Intelligence is readily understandable, acceptable and supportable by most Canadians. </li></ul><ul><li>www.cultureofpeace.ca/CCOPPmarketingstrategy.htm </li></ul><ul><li>The Must Read Book: www.peace.ca/socialintelligence.htm </li></ul>
