Vision 2021: Imagining Progress Through Conflict Resolution
These increasingly tumultuous times we live in make it nearly impossible to avoid conflict, but it doesn't have to necessarily be toxic. In fact, conflict can be very healthy. It helps increase awareness of existing problems, and can motivate people to collaborate and find solutions for a better way forward. When conflict is addressed constructively, it can foster an environment that encourages personal and professional growth where change leads to improvement.
This year's virtual youth leadership symposium aims to provide students with the tools and skills to acknowledge conflicts rather than avoid them, and explore productive, healthy ways to resolve them.
