I recently participated in a fellowship for media professionals interested in promoting peace in the world and in their industry. I travelled to Thailand and underwent an intensive meditation and personal professional development program for a week, organised by an group called Peace Revolution.
Peace Revolution have spaces for their Youth Fellowship Program in June 2011 in Thailand, and I would like to invite you or any young people you know to apply.
The course is aimed at young people (aged 18-30) who are optimistic, open-minded, show leadership potential, and have a genuine interest in peace. Although there is no specific media focus, I think anyone will benefit in terms of the new outlook and perspective that the experience can give you.
