Deadline: 31 January 2011
Open to: educators worldwide
Starting date: July 11 – July 25, 2011
Peace Revolution is pleased to announce a new fellowship program for educators worldwide, to be held between July 11 and July 25, 2011. If you are an educator to college students or to high school seniors, you are cordially invited to apply.
Because the future lies in the hands of today’s younger generations, teaching is the most important profession in shaping the course of the world. Good teachers can help students develop academically and professionally, but only great teachers can inspire them to effect positive changes in the world. Good teachers can guide their students in building great technological advances, but only great teachers can ensure that such advances are being used for good. Students’ development of practical knowledge must go hand-in-hand with their development of ethical standards.
During this fellowship, participants will learn basic meditation techniques to develop their clarity of mind. You will then get to explore the link between clarity of mind and the development of ethical standards. Participants will also contribute through discussions on how to promote and incorporate such standards in the education of young adults.
Peace Revolution is a project that aims to provide a new paradigm-shift on the peace building process by means of the Inner Peace Time (IPT) and engaging young peace activists through online social media. Our IPT method is designed for all people, regardless of nationality, race, or religion. It is a universal tool in dealing with problems ranging from stress, depression, family issues, to global crises at large. Presently, Peace Revolution has about 2,000 young participants online from 140 countries around the world. There are 61 active Peace Agents aged 18-30 from 36 countries who have attended one of the three Peace Revolution workshops, conferences and training camps held during 2009-2010.
The Peace Revolution Fellowship covers the costs related to accommodation, food and local transport during participants’ two-week stay in Thailand. There may also be limited support for air travel for applicants with limited financial resources; however, Peace Revolution cannot pay for participants’ visas, health or travel insurance.
Educators of college students or of high school seniors.
Individuals with good working knowledge of both written and spoken English.
