Peaceful Coexistence for Development
Student politics had a glorious past in Bangladesh. It has a history of struggle and sacrifice for a national cause. Leaders from any students’ party/union used to be chosen democratically to guide the group
In Bangladesh, inter-party violence is used by party activists to show their commitment to the party, while intra-party violence can secure a particular faction’s position within the party. These dynamics were highly prevalent in public university campuses during the 80s, 90s and to some extent over the last 2 decades.
To improve understanding about social harmony and its utilization, peaceful leadership, acceptance and promotion of diversity, how social harmony can be used to reduce violence among student wings, anti-corruption, JAAGO Foundation is organizing an event named Peaceful Coexistence for Development.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are the university students and the members of student political wings. The workshops will build the capacity of 150 participants through 5 workshops in 5 districts. With the new understanding, they can work constructively for the development of the country.
Duration of the project: January 2020 to April 2020.
Note: Snacks, Lunch and T-Shirt, Knowledge Materials will be provided and the workshop is free of cost.
