Leadership for Peace Weekend Friday 21 – Sunday 23 November 2014

November 19, 2014 | Nick Taylor

A FREE Leadership for Peace programme giving you an opportunity to develop leadership skills, enabling you to become positive role models to others.

This residential programme will provide an opportunity to hear from people who have experienced violent conflict, about what they have done to find an outlet for their experience and to make a positive contribution to peace.

It will cover aspects of leadership and peacebuilding and aims to assist everyone to develop skills and confidence to work in their own communities.

Don’t be afraid about the concept of being part of a Leadership Programme! For some it starts with small steps, having the confidence to tell one person about your situation and how you’ve managed the trauma you have experienced. For others it will be a larger affair with a number of years experience of working within communities and exhibiting leadership skills. The purpose of the weekend is to learn from each other and develop.

The weekend will give you the chance to consider your own ideas and how you can make a contribution to peacebuilding, at whatever level is suited to you.

 To register for this event, please contact Ann at the Foundation at ann.beswick@foundation4peace.org or on 01925 581231. A full programme and travel directions will be sent to you once you’ve signed up to the event.
