During the summit, participants experienced virtual tours of 3 locations; The Peace Trail on the National Mall, The Peace Palace in the Hague, and The Museum of Dayton. The participants were given a chance to engage and collaborate in breakout rooms, directing their discussions to how different countries celebrate and promote peace. This established a platform for individuals to express and learn about distinct cultures and ideologies.
Moreover, participants in the summit were greeted by a keynote speaker, Jack Bauer, a professor of psychology from the United States Institute of Peace. His courses and research focus on the development of self-identity and personality with a specific emphasis on growth motivation and human flourishing
This summit was an enticing, thrilling, and essentially new experience for the participants. From interacting with international students about the implications of peace to engaging in virtual tours, this summit proved to be a significant learning experience for everyone who participated.
Siddharth Manne (an MYP5 student who attended the summit) stated that, “the World Peace Summit was both an energizing and thrilling experience,” and a, “one of a kind, educational experience allowed [him] to truly reflect on the global meaning and significance of peace.”
From Siddharth’s words and many others’ thoughts, it is clear that the summit truly explored the concept of “places of peace” and provided an interactive space in which students could learn about various aspects of peace!
