Indigenous Perspectives on Environmental Conflict Resolution
Community resilience and conflict resolution in the face of drastic environmental changes requires a deeper understanding of the struggles being felt most dramatically, at a local level. Indigenous peoples have a vital role to play in environmental conservation yet face human rights abuses, civil conflict, land stakeholder issues, and many other things due to environmental disruption. We attempt to examine this further by interviewing members of indigenous communities around the world in order to hear their perspectives and further understand how to integrate indigenous, local, and marginalized communities into the environmental peacebuilding discourse.

Youth Empowerment: Models of Ongoing Efforts at Conflict Transformation
Learn about four cutting-edge programs aimed at youth empowerment and conflict transformation in Sierra Leone, Kenya, Occupied Palestine and Lebanon. They all approach youth engagement differently--from a new media and conflict prevention model in Sierra Leone to employment and entrepreneurial training for marginalized populations of women and girls in Kenya's informal settlements to nonviolent resistance and organizing for community opportunity and security in Hebron/Khalil in Occupied Palestine to diverse work with women, youth and empowerment in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. Each context and challenge is unique, yet each tackles the root causes of violent conflict--physical, structural, and cultural--leading to conflict transformation and positive peace. What ties them together is leadership from the grassroots, staff understanding and connection to local communities, and a fierce determination to create hope and a brighter future for the young generation. This will be an interactive session with input and ideas from the audience leaving attendees with new ideas, motivation, and knowledge to use in their own work and efforts at change.

World Lunch: Conversation with Renowned Musician & Activist Ramzi Aburedwan. Talk with Frank Schwalba-Hoth on Peace & the Role of the European Parliament
“Borders have been created by human beings. But through music we can dream, break down these borders”. The freedoms music offered Ramzi are intimately entwined with his personal history and life experiences as a child growing up in a refugee camp in Ramallah, Palestine. Learn how through music he is giving children and families from vulnerable communities hope and is working for positive peace in his occupied land. An informative talk with Frank Schwalba-Hoth, Founding Member of German Green Party and European Parliament where he will share with us his valuable insights in questions like what do high-level government politicians think of the works of peacebuilders from non-governmental sectors, or how can peace-making practitioners and public sectors collaborate to achieve a better outcome for the humanitarian projects on the ground.
