Seeing Systems: Peace, Justice, and Sustainability
Thursday, Jul 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until August 6, 2018
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. claimed that that whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. Because of this, peace is not possible until we recognize how interrelated we are. This six session discussion course helps participants to develop systems thinking skills in order to see those connections. We will examine entrenched values and assumptions that reinforce current practices and systems. When are those practices and systems destructive and unhealthy? Together, we will envision a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world, discover practical actions we can take toward that goal, and inspire each other to become leaders in our own communities and spheres of influence.
Each session is based on a set of readings from the NWEI course book, with rotating facilitation by course participants. This course is hosted by Michigan Friends Center and offered in partnership with the Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice.
Sliding-scale fee of $30, $45, or $60 (as able) to cover book and other course costs; pre-registration required.
