Workshop on peace, security and development

To signup "
Peace, security and development are today some of the world's most important themes to delve into in order to be involved and influence our common future. With a worsening security situation with, for example, the conflict between Israel and Hamas and Russia's war in Ukraine, it is perhaps more important than ever to clarify what we are actually talking about when we talk about peace and security, what these topics mean to us as individuals and how our approach can affect the government's actions in our surrounding world and here at home.

Tuesday, December 5 at 18.00-19.30 FUF Uppsala together with Swedish Peace's local group in Uppsala invites you to a workshop on peace, security and development at the study association Sensus in Uppsala.

Elsa Ewert and Linnéa Petersson from Swedish Peace's local group will hold the workshop where participants can discuss and reflect on what the concepts of peace, security and development include and mean to each of us. Perhaps there are different perceptions of the same concept? What kind of different outcomes can it give in each person's actions? How is it that we create different views of the same concept? Together we will be challenged in our ways of thinking and hopefully leave the evening with new insights and perspectives on what a sustainable and peaceful path forward looks like and how we can work preventively around these important issues.

The workshop will be held in Swedish. We will be in the Kungsängsliljan room at Sensu's office in Uppsala. Please note that you need to register via this link latest at 12.00 on the same day to participate. FUF Uppsala offers coffee!

Hope we see you there!
