The June 2, 2018 Presidential Peacebuilding Conference will be an opportune time to listen and act on the many opportunities we have to build and cultivate peace within ourselves, among people, and in our local and global communities.
While not all speakers are confirmed, the following are the plenary and breakout sessions that will be a part of our Peacebuilding Conference for Rotarians and Community Leaders. On a separate track, high school students and Interact students will be engaged in a Rotary-UN Model Day focused on Peacebuilding through Education Resolutions in another part of the South Shore Cultural Center. The Rotarians and Community Leaders will hear from the Student Caucus Leaders from the Rotary-UN Model Day at the end of the program.
Check back here in early January 2018 for confirmed speakers.
