Achieving Peaceful Pluralism in a Globalized World: Engaging Institutions through Active Citizenship
The Hart House Global Commons is an interdisciplinary space for U of T students (including UTSC and UTM) to engage in real-time dialogue with students who will be participating virtually from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia, The University of Cape Town, South Africa, and Indiana University Bloomington. Join us for an exciting opportunity to engage internationally, share perspectives and lived experience, and explore ways to work in our communities towards peaceful and justice-based pluralism.
The first event of the 2017-2018 series focuses on how the state, government actors, and institutions at large contribute to or hinder the conditions needed for a supportive and inclusive society. What is our role as citizens in developing and increasing agency at the institutional level? How do we challenge institutions to provide improved conditions?
