People’s World Peace Project and Community Colleges

By: David J. Smith, October 29, 2015

My colleague Joseph de Rivera, who directed the peace studies program at Clark University, is looking to connect with community colleges. He is involved in the People’s World Peace Project. He wrote:

            The web site is trying to cultivate the global community we need for a culture of peace. The site features solutions-oriented news from over a hundred excellent NGOs, but also has a tab for peace resources with summaries of tools for nonviolent action, negotiation, government, and personal transformation.  There is a “Share your thoughts” tab which allows for comments on the posted news and I think that submitting a comment might be an interesting writing assignment for students in peace studies classes.  Would you please take a look at and give me suggestions for student involvement?
