Open Call: Waging Peace Space

The Academy for the Love of Learning invites you to apply to our Waging Peace Space open call. The Waging Peace Space is an emerging conversation space where we will share our stories and explore how we become better at being humans.

Open Call

Do you have a story to share about becoming the change you wish to create in the world? Are you curious about how unlearning can help us become better at being individuals, community members, and enactors of collective change?

Share your stories and reflections with us in a 60-minute online conversation. We will be hosting up to 12 of these conversations between now and April 29, 2024. We know well how much work and intention sit behind these stories, so we will provide participants with a $100 honorarium, in the form of a gift card.

What is the Waging Peace Space?

Waging Peace is the process of becoming better at being a human, individual, and community member through unlearning patterns and evolving forward. For over 30 years, the Academy’s workshops, programs and fellowships have been clearing the way for peace wagers to become the change they wish to create in the world. The Waging Peace Space weaves our practices and body of work with our new vision and strategy: reimagining how and where learning happens with like minds and co-creating a network of new learning spaces.

Why should I participate?

As the Academy continues to live into its new vision of reimagining where and how learning happens, we seek to learn from like minds. By joining the Waging Peace Space conversations, you will help the Academy imagine and shape an emerging learning space. Some participants may be invited to apply to a learning award program in the future.
