22nd International Conference on Service-Learning
22nd International Conference
SERVICE-LEARNING: Developing New Leadership for Communities, Nations, and the World
Chiang Mai, Thailand, January 3 – 10, 2004
Service-learning, leadership, participatory governance, sustainable development, justice, peace. The line of connection between these concepts and practices is clear and demonstrable. Institutions of higher education around the world are discovering that the pedagogy of uniting academic study and volunteer service is producing a new kind of leader, aware of the problems facing communities, nations and the world, and committed to addressing them in a cooperative, inclusive way. The 22nd International Conference of The International Partnership for Service-Learning will bring together educators and service providers from around the world to consider how service-learning lays the foundation for leadership that in turn builds stronger, healthier and more peaceful societies.
Using the Asian context as a primary example of such development, the conference will include lectures, discussion groups, workshops, and poster sessions; visits to local service agencies; field trips in Chiang Mai and the surrounding countryside; and optional sight-seeing tours. Participants wishing to extend their stay and provide service to the people of Thailand may also enroll in one of three projects. The conference will provide opportunities to meet and discuss service-learning with colleagues from around the globe.
We hope that you will be able to join us. Special conference subsidies for Asian participants are available. See conference website for details:
