The First Violence Prevention Education Conference Launches this February in Israel
ESD Global and El HaLev join forces to host the first of what promises to become an annual conference devoted to Violence Prevention around the world
Mark your calendars. Beginning this coming February, ESD Global and El HaLev are proud to launch the First Violence Prevention Education Conference in Jerusalem. Accompanied by a series of Level 1, Master Instructor, and Co-ed Level 1 trainings, the conference features Professor Yair Amichai-Hamburger and Dr. Gal Harmat as keynote speakers.
Dr. Amichai-Hamburger is a Professor at IDC Herzliya, a private research university founded in 1994 by Uriel Reichman. He will be speaking on the need to provide children and young people the necessary tools to build the resilience required to counter online violence.
Dr. Harmat holds a Ph.D. in Gender Analysis of Peace Education and Dialogue. Her lecture, Intersectional Education: Gender Analysis of Empowerment Self-Defense, focuses on the future of education, what we are doing well, and what needs to change in order to successfully propel us into the future.
We will also be joined by The Haruv Institute, who will host a panel to discuss the implementation of solutions through the ESD method, the UNHCR – who will share insights as to the current projects with refugees, both in Tel Aviv and abroad, and a special panel with Dr. Yaron Schwartz on Engaging Men and Boys.
Among the numerous speakers and lecturers, too many to be listed in this article, attendees can also join panels on Incorporating Trauma-Informed Strategies in Violence Prevention Programs and “How-to” discussions on practical ways to implement ESD education and skills in their home countries.
As with all conferences, several networking opportunities and Think Tanks will be available with experts in their respective fields.
