I believe that education plays a key role in developing and promoting peace between nations. Through Education, we can collectively put in our efforts in finding solutions like SEL to give those tools to those who are the future leaders. To truly build a peaceful world, we need to create a generation of compassionate leaders.
As a lifelong learner, I believe we all have something to learn from each other, as individuals, as institutions and as nations. I think there is so much power in bringing together people from across borders to build safe spaces, and I strongly believe Social-Emotional Learning should be an essential tool in peacebuilding since it puts us all on the same plane irrespective of where we come from, what we do, our gender, our religion.
