Orange Dialogue for Peace Project

Did the time you spent immersing yourself in another culture alter your perceptions of the global community?  Are you eager to continue sharing and growing from your study abroad experience now that you’ve returned home? 

If you’ve answered yes, then you won’t want to miss Orange Dialogue for Peace, a team building and cross-cultural awareness project taking place on the SU campus later this month.  This exciting project, open to both undergraduate and graduate applicants, is designed to provide a safe environment for students to explore individual  thoughts about intergroup conflicts and to challenge collective memories of groups in conflict that shape mutual perceptions and influence the dynamics of interaction between these groups. 

If you’re selected, you’ ll work alongside your peers in the context of fun, outdoor and indoor teambuilding activities and engage in analytical discussions of needs, concerns, fears, and hopes of your present day societies. The goal of the project is to help future leaders establish mutual understanding and trust, and  move towards discussing the areas of cooperation for sustainable world peace and friendship.

The project unfolds in three sessions:

Conflict Resolution and Communication Session
Thursday, February 18, 2010
5:00pm-7:30pm
Slutker Center (310 Walnut Place)

Outdoor Activity: Moonlight Snowshoe Hike

Indoor Teambuilding Workshop
