This conference has the dual purpose of giving you a chance to explore two vital moral virtues, which are key to our humanity: agape love and forgiveness.
Agape love is defined as being in service to others for their sake and this can require effort and even at times be painful.
To forgive is to work toward reducing resentment and offering goodness of some kind to those who have not been good to you.
Day One of the conference includes educators from Israel (Hebrew-speaking and Arabic-speaking schools), Northern Ireland (Controlled and Maintained schools), and Taiwan discussing their experiences teaching an agape love and forgiveness curriculum to 5th grade students. Day Two will focus on why teaching forgiveness education to our students is important and how anyone can implement best practices with forgiveness interventions.
The conference is being conducted by the International Forgiveness Institute with funding provided by the John Templeton Foundation. Both days will be in English with simultaneous interpretations in Arabic, Hebrew, and Mandarin.
