Inspirationlab Teaching for Peace and Justice

We invite you to join the Inspirationlab: Teaching for Peace and Justice! This special edition of our Inspirationlab is part of the Coursera Conference to be held in The Hague from 20 – 22 March. 

We identify that thinking about the future of education is highly cultural, inherently personal and evolved by government rule and regulations. Online education might have the potential to bridge local contexts – and ultimately promote peace and justice, but how? And for what? In this special edition we want to explore these questions together with you.

Speakers Prof. Gilly Salmon and Prof. Maurits Barendrecht share their visions on this topic.

Join the discussion on Tuesday March 22nd (16.30-17:30) and register for the event by sending an email to: or sigh up to our meetup here. 

Location: Living Lab, Schouwburgstraat 2, The Hague
