Peace Boat’s Global University


Peace Boat’s Global University - Now Accepting Participants for
August 2017 [Tokyo-Yangon]

How do we achieve peace and justice in society? This question is more
pressing today, when the tendency to secure safety by division and
exclusion―rather than cooperation and inclusion―seems to be spreading
globally. When we turn on news, anti-immigration rhetoric is heard
everywhere and intolerance to others seems to be growing stronger.

From August 10 to 28, 2017, Japan-based international NGO Peace Boat’s
Global University will organise a 19-day programme with the theme
“Building Peaceful and Inclusive Societies in the Asia-Pacific.”

The programme will be a combination of interactive onboard seminars
and field visits in four places (Tokyo, Xiamen, Singapore, and
Yangon). Drawing on actual case studies from the Asia-Pacific region,
this programme will expose participants to issues related to poverty
and discrimination, environmental issues, migration and conflict.
Inviting Khin Ohmar (Democracy and Human Rights Activist) and Oshidari
Kenro (Former United Nations World Food Programme Regional Director
for Asia) as the navigators, participants will explore the key
question of how build peaceful and inclusive societies in the
Asia-Pacific.

We welcome students and young professionals from the Asia-Pacific and
other regions between the age of 18 to 35. All programmes will be
conducted in English.
Please visit our website for more details (brochure and application
form are also available from here):

Application will close at 17:00 (Japan Standard Time) on Wednesday,
May 31, 2017. *Scholarships may be available for a limited number of
outstanding candidates.
