Jamaica has only recently joined our MasterPeace network, and they already had a great kick-off event!
On the fifth of May they organized an event in collaboration with NexxStepp Lifelong Education Services.
The event was a competition
where children between the ages of seven and twelve were challenged to debate and think critically.
The theme of the competition was Peace and Global Competitiveness, inspired by
Sustainable Development Goal number 16 called Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
And at the end of the day, one student has been crowned the Little Genius.

MasterPeace Jamaica firmly believes that peace building is for both the young and the old
hearted. “If we want to develop the skills that are needed to transform this world, then we
need to start with the young minds of the youth. Together, they will form a platform that
makes the world a better place”. Through debating, MasterPeace Jamaica teaches children
how to disagree without starting a conflict. And how to respect themselves and others. The
team at MasterPeace Jamaica is thrilled to pave the way for future peace builders… We
are very excited about their ideas and determination, good luck MasterPeace Jamaica!

These are some pictures of the participants.
