o The UWC Maastricht International Peace Conference (IPC) is an annually student-led initiative with the chief aim of creating a climate in which youth can meet and exchange ideas concerning the achievement of peace. Now in its seventh edition, for the first time in IPC history, the UWC Maastricht IPC team is utilising the UWC Unlocked Talks platform to invite the wider UWC community to join in on this year’s conversations around the theme of “peace in action”.
Via student-led workshops, participants will:
Look into ways in which youth are engaging in peace-building today;
Explore the connection between identity and activism;
Examine the role that intersectionality plays in the fight for social justice;
Unpack the various criticisms of activism in its many forms.
o Wednesday 7 April, 17.00h (Maastricht time)
