Busy summer commences in Kyrgyzstan
Now that finals are almost over at Park University, things are really going to start to get busy.
Beginning the week of May 12, I'll be headed out to spread the peace journalism gospel. The first initiative will be workshop presentations at the Fulbright Association's conference titled, "Generation Peace-New Media Technologies for Central Asia." This seminar is being held at a beautiful lake resort in Kyrgystan (central Asia). Then, it's off to Beirut to teach peace journalism courses for professionals and students in conjunction with MasterPeace Lebanon. The June itinerary includes a Peace Journalism Boot Camp in the Bronx, NY.
Of course, photos of and details about these seminars and courses will be posted in a timely fashion on this very blog. So, stay tuned. You can also follow me on Twitter: @PeaceJourn.
