Director of Pax Educare Mary Lee Morrison is off to Budapest in July for the annual week-long International Institutes on Peace Education (IIPE). IIPE was founded by noted peace educator Betty Reardon 25 years ago. The small conference of 65 invited participants brings together best practices in peace education from educators around the world. The gathering is held in a different international location each year. The philosophy of shared community building while learning is key to the institute’s success. Life-long colleagial friendships are formed and the institute models what is inherent in the best form of learning-uncovering the teacher within and building knowledge from a shared base. Here at Pax Educare we try and model this kind of pedagogical approach in our activities and public outreach.
