The Path to Peace in Northern Ireland
Organized by: Tyler Skafgaard
We all have heard it time and time again the desire for World Peace, but how does one go about doing this? This semester, in order to be effective in this pursuit of peace. I am taking a class on International Conflict Transformation for my major at North Park University. In this class, I will be learning how to take conflict and turn it into something productive and beneficial for all. From May 15th through the 29th my class will be training and learning from the people of Northern Ireland about effective means of peacemaking including techniques focused on incorporating art and theatre. In a world plagued by terror, this trip will teach us how to be powerful voices for positive change. None of this, however, will be possible without generous donations from supporters like yourself. I ask of you to donate anything that you can afford to help me embark on this trip to Northern Ireland. Every dollar gets me one step towards Northern Ireland and being able to help the worlds conflicts with peaceful transformation. If you have more questions about the specifics of what my colleagues and I will be doing on the trip, feel free to contact me. I am more than willing to talk about my passion to see this world in a more peaceful light.
