What They Do:
The Global Immersion project (TGIP) seeks to cultivate everyday peacemakers by giving them access to seemingly inaccessible global and domestic conflicts and the peacemakers that live and work in these arenas. The goal is to integrate the work of reconciliation and peacemaking into the consciences of individuals around the globe. In doing so, they aspire to develop generations of everyday peacemakers that can influence the global and local realities they face in their neighborhoods, villages, towns, and cities.
How They Do It:
TGIP curates three-phase Learning Labs that culminate in immersion experiences into international and domestic conflicts. TGIP is currently hosting Learning Labs focused on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the U.S. Immigration Crisis, but also plans to expand to address various other international and domestic issues and locations.
