ICON works at 3rd African Alliance for Peace Summit

Crispin Hemson participated in the training of activists from across the continent in Kigali, Rwanda, early in February 2014.  A large group worked together, sharing their experiences and challenges in bringing peace.  The key focus was on peace education.  ICON’s responsibility was to work on the theories and concepts of peace, and also to direct thinking on how we challenge violence within education.
