What is Planting Peace?
Planting Peace is a two week cross-cultural training session that brings together twenty young adults from around the world. First piloted in 2010, the program provides practical training that is enhanced through experiential field trips and enriched through the stories and contexts of our participants.
Planting Peace is all about breaking down barriers and creatively talking across boundaries to work towards a more peaceful world. Once complete, participants will have gained skills and support networks to be peace promoters in the regions and contexts where they live.
Who can participate?
MCC is a peace, relief and development organization working from a Christian perspective. MCC seeks to serve and walk alongside those in need, regardless of faith. We welcome people of all faiths to take part in Planting Peace and build bridges with us.
Canadian Participants: All are welcome to apply, however preference will be given to Albertan Young Adults ages 18-30.
International Participants are referred through their local MCC Office and are connected to MCC peace partners in their local community.
