Geneva Peace Week Workshop Registration
Mobile Technology Partner to Support Youth: Nov. 5 Thursday 17:00 - 18:15 pm CET (8am PST)

Play for Peace (international NGO) and Kikori (startup edtech company) came together in 2018 with a shared version for building peace and democratizing access to experiential education. Since that time, they have co-created a mobile and browser based application that supports educators, facilitators and peace-builders in 21, primarily post-conflict, countries with experiential and social emotional activities, knowledge sharing and networking. During this interactive workshop, attendees will gain insight into proven experiential and SEL techniques that are shared in the application as well as a reflection on the successes and challenges of creating a for-profit, nonprofit collaboration. Attendees will also preview the evaluation and data collection tools that are being built, together with the University of New Hampshire, and incorporated into the application. The activities found in the application are categorized by learning outcomes including SEL, 21st Century and Sustainable Development Goals. Individuals and institutions will be invited to download and use the activities and application.
