About The Event

Join the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston for a social evening focused on Perspectives On Peace with Marc Mori.

The topics of discussion will be:

Introduction

Peace Concepts

Inner Peace and Outer Peace

Peace as a Creative Act

These topics will be followed up by breakout sessions and a harvest. Would like to have a student in each breakout session to be a “recorder” keeping track of the responses of each breakout session so we can have a “harvest” capturing the collective intelligence of the group. 

The event will host a guest expert who will be facilitating a discussion around sustainability and ways we can take action. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to learn about ways to get involved in their own community as leaders.

Please email our Education Department ([email protected]) for any questions about our education programs.
