The Peace as a Global Language Conference (PGL) invites educators, students, activists and others interested in peace and global studies to submit presentation proposals to our third annual conference. We especially welcome presentations that include innovative teaching/learning approaches developed on the following general themes:

Global issues
Human rights
Alternative Education
Multicultural issues
Teaching/learning issues
International/comparative studies

Session formats include, but are not limited to; panel discussions, workshops, research presentations, slide/video shows, and poster sessions. We encourage submissions which indicate progressive presentations methods. We propose two basic formats whereby; seven or eight of the above topics will be chosen to form 5-person moderated panel sessions lasting 2 hours each. Each panelist will speak briefly; allowing maximum time for interactive discussion. The alternative format will be through concurrent sessions of 1-hour in length, whereby individual or joint presentation are encouraged.

NOTE: This conference is primarily self-supporting. Therefore, we ask that you submit a proposal only if you will be able to register for the conference at the appropriate fee (3000 yen/person and 800 yen for students). In cases of financial hardship, the Peace as a Global Language conference may be able to provide very limited financial support or accommodations to support select presenters.
