Young Policy Fellows Programme

About this course

In this course, we shall explore the five social and emotional competencies that we can develop for our personal flourishing and well-being. We will examine the foundational importance of the inner dimension of true peace to the other two dimensions: social and environmental. In the four hours of contact time, we shall focus on our identities and how a particular understanding of “who am I?” can contribute to non-violent engagement with identity-based conflicts.
