For over 55 years, the greater Peace Corps community has contributed immensely to addressing global challenges. As we look to the future, we chart the course for continued and heightened impact.
Sessions must address one of the following topics:
- Global Health: ensuring healthy lives for all ages worldwide
- Environment: protecting our planet and building resilient communities
- Economic Development: achieve sustained and inclusive economic growth
- Equality & Justice: promoting equality and empowerment of marginalized populations
- Education and Youth Development: enhancing opportunities to positively impact communities
As you submit your proposal, consider the Peace Corps community’s agenda for the future. Sessions will be forward-looking and inspire conversation on how Peace Corps and our communities can continue to be an influence in these areas and increase our global impact.
