MECA and the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) partnered to deliver a leadership project at Chifley College Senior Campus in Mount Druitt, funded by Multicultural NSW.
The project ran from late April to early August and involved a group of Year 11 students designing and implementing a project that would foster peace and harmony within their school community. The project was centred upon IEP’s concept of positive peace, being “the attitudes, structures and institutions that underpin and sustain peaceful societies.” The students participated in several workshops that helped them to develop their understanding of positive peace, in addition to attending an excursion to the Sydney Jewish Museum. The project received seed funding of $5,000.00 for the students to design and implement a positive peace project within their own school community.
