Charleston Peace One Day

Building Tangible Peace In the Lowcountry and South Carolina.

Charleston Peace One Day is an educational tool working to bring intercultural cooperation and non-violence to the low country. In 2001, The United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/Res/55/282) was unanimously adopted by UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September-Peace Day. Internationally Peace One Day is a non-profit organization, impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion, corporation or religious creed. Since the day of peace was accepted by the UN, Peace One Day has been successful in creating peace building education curriculum, soccer tournaments, and establishing peace day celebrations, ceasefires, and other peace-building initiatives all over the world. Charleston Peace One Day is taking this mission and localizing it to the Charleston and South Carolina area. Charleston Peace One Day was founded (as a non-profit 2009-2013) in 2008 with Charleston’s first ever city-wide peace day festival. Today the goal is simply to educate, year round on initiatives that support intercultural cooperation and non-violence and then come together again during the week of peace, September 17th -23 to highlight those efforts. For more information on Charleston Peace One Day: www.bepeaceful.org

Charleston Peace One Day has hosted the annual Charleston Peace One Day Festival (2008-2010) & Peace Happens Campaing (2011-2013) to create awareness around the International Day of Peace. Charleston Peace One Day is now an educational tool that will be hosting the stories of actions that foster peace year round. This initiative will encourage individuals and organizations to "do something," along with the rest of the world during this international week of peace. What can you do....working in creative ways to make this a better world?

"The Race for What's Left": Fighting Over the World's Last Resources

MICHAEL KLARE

Wednesday, October 29

7pm in SSMB Room 129, (The auditorium in the new science building, across from Addlestone Library, at the corners of Calhoun and Coming Streets)


The world is facing an unprecedented crisis of resource depletion---a crisis that encompasses shortages of oil and coal, copper and cobalt, water and arable land. With all of the Earth’s accessible areas already being exploited, the desperate hunt for supplies has now reached the final frontiers. This talk takes us from the Arctic to war zones to deep ocean floors, from a Russian submarine planting the country’s flag under the North Pole to the large-scale buying up of African farmland by Saudi Arabia and other food-scarce nations. With resource extraction growing more difficult, the environmental risks are becoming increasingly severe---and the intense search for dwindling supplies is igniting new conflicts and territorial disputes. The only way out, as will be argued, is to alter our consumption patterns altogether, a crucial task that will be the greatest challenge of the coming century.


Michael T. Klare is the Five College Professor of Peace and World Security Studies and has written widely on U.S. defense policy, the arms trade, global resource politics, and world security affairs. He is the author, most recently, of

Resource Wars (2001), Blood and Oil (2004), Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet: The New Geopolitics of Energy (2008), and The Race for What’s Left: The Global Struggle for the World’s Last Resources (2012). He is also the defense correspondent of The Nation magazine and has contributed articles to Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Harper's, Le Monde Diplomatique, The National Interest, Newsweek, and Scientific American, among others. Klare has also worked with many non-governmental organizations in the peace and human rights fields and currently serves on the board of directors of the Arms Control Association.

This event is sponsored by CofC’s First Year Experience, the Masters in Environmental Studies, and Environmental Studies Program.
