Saint Mary’s Gives Peace a Chance

By Maroon & White | spring 2014

January saw the 10th anniversary of the Saint Mary’s University and Peaceful Schools International peace education initiative in Belfast, an annual program led by Bridget Brownlow, Saint Mary’s conflict resolution adviser. Over the past decade, more than 100 Saint Mary’s students have travelled to Northern Ireland and taught conflict resolution strategies to thousands of school children. Drawing on the skills learned in facilitated workshops in Halifax, and in programs they deliver to elementary schools in the Halifax area, the Saint Mary’s University students have used classroom games and activities to teach valuable skills for building a sustainable culture of peace.
