    LIVE EVENTS

The Peace3 Conversations are live events that are held in partnership with universities and colleges in auditoriums and other large venues. They are designed to galvanize young adults and foster commitments on their parts to learn how to cultivate inner peace on their own behalf as well as to foster peace between groups and among nations. These conversations are streamed live and people throughout the world are encouraged to join the live discussions

The conversations vary in format. We work with our partner institution to identify the peace topic that is most relevant to their audience. While the Peace Conversations will always include a focus on one of the three forms of peace, it will always be connected to preventing or solving real life dilemmas, conflicts and violent situations. Important issues individuals and society are currently grappling with, and for which there are recent headline news stories in traditional and new media will be woven into the discussion as an object lesson

In order for the Peace concepts to become a lifestyle, opportunities to practice and apply what is learned will be provided. Organizations that teach peace practices and methodologies and offer ways to contribute to a more peaceful community, society or world are invited to partner with DTPF. In turn, Peace3 participants will be introduced to them during the live conversations, online and through social media.

If you would like to host a Conversation on Peace at your campus, please contact brian@tutufoundationusa.org.
