Creating Tomorrows Leaders
Students and young professionals from around the world* attend the Design Science/Global Solutions Lab. Participants are briefed by UN experts (from the UN Development Program, UN Environmental Program, UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO and other UN agencies), develop strategies and designs for solving some of the world's most critical problems, and then present their work at the UN to a group of UN, corporate and foundation leaders. Participants learn a powerful strategic design and planning methodology that is of use for the rest of their life, as well learn about leadership, problem solving and the design revolution. They learn about global problems, options, technology, culture, resources and what they can do to make a difference. They meet others with similar passions about the state of the world— and what we can do to make things better.
* Previous Lab participants have come from Spain, Mexico, France, Germany, Ireland, Georgia, Poland, Lithuania, Tanzania, Nigeria, Ghana, South Sudan, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Haiti, Jamaica, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, India, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Lithuania, Sudan, Nepal, Turkey, Venezuela and all over the US.

Host Children's Peace Art
The Pacem in Terris Children’s Peace Art Exhibition is an opportunity for all of us to learn from our younger citizens what the world should be like. As part of the Pacem in Terris 50th Anniversary in 2017 we are “going back to our roots”— the initial innocence of youth, its vision and idealism— as a way of looking forward to the next 50 years.
