We are forming a planning committee currently for the Peace Conference. The committee will have the freedom to create the type of event they think will have the most impact for the local community. This committee will be in charge of deciding the format of the conference, contacting potential speakers, inviting attendees and the logistics of the event. I will serve as a support system for the committee and will attend all committee meetings.
As each community is different, 'peace' can mean different things. Some ideas the HI staff has had is recruiting professors with peace studies or conflict resolution expertise, creating a discussion, including interactive activities for the audience, showing a related movie, or even a more 'Austin-y' event with live music and local food. We can also focus on a particular topic like international peace, peace in the middle east, immigration in Texas, etc. Again, all of these details will be decided by the committee and the HI programs staff.
The event will take place on or around World Day for Social Justice. Here is a link for more information about the holiday. http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/un/world-social-justice-day
