Academic Action Days

Academic Action Days are integrative workshops for 'today's generation' of educators and are facilitated by a 'Joker Team' from PIA's pool of experienced trainers. These workshops aim to provide a forum for current and future educators to discover and strengthen their competences for building peace. Through the participation in presentations, interactive discussions, theoretical, practical and creative activities, and personal reflections, these workshops will guide current and future educators to a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities as the peace educators of tomorrow.
