Fourth version of the Peace Slam in Stuttgart

Fourth version of the Peace Slam in Stuttgart

Following three Peace Slams in Colombia, the fourth will be held in Germany.

What is Peace Slam?

The Peace Slam is a public space in which research papers or projects are presented in a fun and creative way. The Slam is open to students, researchers and people working in the field of education, NGOs, or projects, and is intended to promote the creative transfer of knowledge and experience on issues related to political education for peace.

The Slam is organised within the framework of the CAPAZ project on Education and Science Diplomacy and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This, the fourth edition, will take place in collaboration with the Academy of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart.

How does the Slam work?

Each participant or slammer has a maximum of ten minutes to present his or her research project or initiative. A variety of formats can be used including text, music, video, or photos. However, the focus should be on making the presentation as creative, understandable, and entertaining as possible.

The Peace Slam in Germany
Political education plays an important role in promoting coexistence in any society. However, what role can political education play in promoting peace, and what are the potentials and limitations of political education in terms of strengthening coexistence?  With these questions as a backdrop, the motto of the fourth Peace Slam is,

Do we need political education for peace? Experiences from Latin America and Europe”.
