2024 Theme *The Pedagogy and Peace Politics of Change: Navigating the
Tensions Between Tradition and Modernity*
Nepal today epitomizes a crossroads of transitions and an exchange of
knowledge and culture as it did on the ancient Silk Road, a pathway of
trade between East and West. IIPE 2024 aims to be a crossroads of
*for peace educator-activists and scholars where Nepalese participants will
exchange perspectives with global participants on shared, diverse
challenges and problems. IIPE Nepal invites questions that open new
perspectives on global and local issues. All participants will offer their
experience to the learning community that will build shared understandings
towards adapting for the survival and well-being of peoples and Earth in
this time of crises. IIPE in Nepal offers a unique opportunity for
incorporating ancient wisdom with present knowledge for peaceful futures:
how can these ways of knowing be brought together to better educate and
learn for peace? *Nepal: Themes & Issues*
In the context of Nepal, we’ll explore political, economic, and ecological
challenges that also exist globally. Nepal is diverse in landscape,
languages, geographies, and ethnicities; strivings here offer a microcosm
that mirrors global contexts. Nepal, a federated constitutional democracy
since 2015, faces pressures of militarism, autocracy, displaced peoples,
human rights violations, competition for resources, culture including
gender, as well as pressures of global great power dynamics that exist in
all present-day democracies. These challenges, like those in the global
peace community, raise questions of how to navigate the tensions between
ancient cultures and spiritual traditions and the present economic and
political pressures of the modern globalized world. *Global Commonalities*
At IIPE 2024: Nepal, we will delve into the diverse perspectives of
Nepalese and global participants on threats and challenges such as the
climate catastrophes that are transforming our geographical landscapes as
well as the pressures due to political shifts in great powers that
transform the contexts of our realities. These shifts seem to render
ordinary citizens helpless. Yet, educating for peace aims to empower
citizens to open their minds to the potential of cross-contextual thinking
together to generate collective understandings and creative alternative
paths for actions.

Read the full theme statement.
IIPE 2024 will be held at the Tayo Eco Resort
Located 32km from the capital city of Kathmandu, Tayo Eco Resort is perched
on top of Shanti Danda or Peace hill in Nagarkot, amidst dense forests,
emerald terraced farmlands, quaint villages, with breathtaking views of the
Himalayas. *Peacelearning at IIPE 2024: Nepal*
IIPE Nepal will feature immersive experiences and excursions to learn
first-hand the local manifestations of the tensions between tradition,
spirituality and modernity. [More details coming soon!]
