"Re-examine and Rethink Hong Kong through a Peace Lens
Significant changes resulting from COVID plus political and constitutional makeover are sweeping through the territory.
In tumultuous times like this, how do we make sense of values like freedom, justice and democracy? How do we recover hope and a sense of direction? What can we do to mend the divides in society and reinstate trust in one another?
The Peace Fellowship invites young people to examine these questions through the peace lens and to draw lessons from other places that have experienced significant social unrest and political changes.
This second cohort of Peace Fellows will first explore the possibilities of peace in a workshop setting, and then work in teams to identify opportunities and formulate plans that will turn into peace actions in the Peace Lab.
Complete the application form now if you are interested in becoming a Peace Fellow. In the application form, you will be asked to upload the following:
- An up-to-date CV
- A short statement about why you would like to be a Peace Fellow
- A letter from your future self about Hong Kong in 2051
- Any other information that would awe us!
Application deadline: 11:59pm, 23 May 2021 (Sunday)
