2017 PeaceJam Rocky Mountain Slam

Workshop Proposal

There is so much wisdom in our Colorado community and we at PeaceJam are excited to create a space to share that wisdom with our conference attendees who are passionate about social change and creating a more peaceful world.

Our request for workshop proposals for this year's 2017 PeaceJam Slam is now open. For 20 years our organization has provided an opportunity for conference attendees in middle and high school to gain skills and insights into innovative ways of addressing the most pressing issues in their communities. This years' event will take place on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 at Manual High School.

We invite you to submit a workshop proposal that will empower our youth in the Rocky Mountain region through knowledge and tools to become influential peacebuilders in their communities. There will be two workshop sessions on Saturday the 4thl. We are offering a modest honorarium as a thank you for your service. Lunch will be provided for all facilitators. 

Workshops will be 75 minutes long. Please prepare your workshop for a group between 20 and 30 middle and high school participants or between 20 to 40 adults. The exact number will be confirmed once we've received participant registrations. Each accepted proposal will be asked to provide a detailed outline. We will send exact session timeslots and room locations once all workshops have been confirmed.
