SPEAKER:  Wayne Murphy, Assistant Governor and NewGenPeacebuilders activist (among a few dozen other roles)

Hi everyone,  Barry Barr and I attended the Rotary Peace Conference in Fredericksburg on Saturday, October 28. We had the delightful pleasure of seeing favorite non-Orange Rotarian Wayne Murphy and learning about NewGen Peacebuilders. Wayne is overseeing a NewGen project with his home club Blue Ridge Mountains in Cville.    I’m thrilled that Wayne is willing to parachute in to introduce our club to this remarkable new undertaking. 

From the website

It “is a youth peace education program designed for high school and university students (14 to 25). It draws on principles of peace education familiar to Rotary Peace Fellows as well as best practices in peace and global education for youth. The program was designed by Rotary Peace Fellow Patricia Shafer (US) with collaboration and input from Rotary Peace Fellows Phill Gittins (UK), Carla Lineback (US) and Pranisa Ekachote (Thailand). One of the key elements/outcomes of this youth peace education program is a team peace education project that youth complete. These projects have spanned education inequality, poverty, domestic violence, international/cultural bridgebuilding and peace conference planning and management. The program content is global/universal in nature, but also adapted/adaptable to local language, issues and cultural circumstances.”
