Hello All, This summer I won one of the first ever "Youth for the SDGs "scholarships to join the Peace Boat. We travelled through Panama, Nicaragua and El Salvador learning about the UN Sustainable Development Goals and peace education. Peace Boat aims to promote its programs on the CCNY campus to reach its goal of recruiting 100 youth for the SDGs for next year's summer program which will be visiting Panama, Mexico and Costa Rica. Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. Peace Boat seeks to create awareness and action based on effecting positive social and political change in the world. It pursues this through the organization of global educational programmes, responsible travel, cooperative projects and advocacy activities. These activities are carried out on a partnership basis with other civil society organizations and communities in Japan, Northeast Asia, and around the world. Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea, and in the ports that it visits. On October 16th the Peace Boat will disembark in NYC and CCNY students, graduates and professors are invited. I will be giving a presentation about my experience as a participant in the Peace Education and Sustainable Development summer program and as a scholarship recipient. This is also a great opportunity to learn about next years summer program which is open to students ages 16-30. To register for the event please visit this link:
