Now in its 18th year as a training institute, MPI will again endeavor to create a space where peacebuilders meet in mind, heart, and spirit to keep abreast of the challenges that the issues of peace and justice present, during the MPI 2017 Annual Peacebuilding Training from May 8 to May 26, 2017, at Mergrande Ocean Resort, Davao City, Philippines.
The MPI 2017 Annual Peacebuilding Training will consist of 14 courses classified into three categories—Foundation, Thematic, and Field-Based. These courses will be taught by a distinguished roster of facilitators from Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe and North America. Four Foundation Courses will be concurrently offered in Week 1, five Thematic Courses in Week 2, and five Thematic and Field-Based Courses will be offered in Week 3. Participants may opt to enroll for just one week, two weeks or all three weeks.
The Foundation Courses lay out the fundamental parameters, approaches and processes encompassed in the field of peacebuilding. The Thematic Courses build on the foundational material by delving into particular strategic areas and focused applications. The Field-Based Courses provide learning opportunities by engaging real world communities where peacebuilding practices and initiatives are being implemented, challenged and refined. These courses will draw on the diversity of peacebuilding initiatives present in Mindanao, Philippines, and help the participants consolidate their classroom-based learning.Click here for the full Course Listing
