Social Inclusion in Education – Brazil

February 23, 2009

Project Description:

To implement educational policies for equality in gender, race/ethnicity and sexual orientation in the classroom, by sensitising teachers towards the issues of discrimination and encouraging a positive appreciation of diversity. 

 Learning Point: 

The success of the project can be attributed to having approached it from the point of view of the participants (teachers), considering that they first have to deal with their own preconceptions (prejudice) before being able to deal with discrimination in the classroom.

Atoms for Peace

February 23, 2009

Project Description:

To push for the creation of an international atomic agency that could regulate the use of nuclear material for peaceful purposes, and to improve the peaceful image of the United States abroad.

Learning Point:

The Atoms for Peace initiative was a bold, forward-looking plan that initially created good will for the United States, but truly failed to capture its intended audience.  Though the creation of the IAEA is a tangible benefit spawned by Atoms for Peace, the failure to get the Soviet Union onboard the plan caused the initiative to fail to accomplish its stated objectives.
