John Hunter, creator of The World Peace Game, a hands-on political simulation that gives players the opportunity to explore the interconnectedness of the global community through the lens of the economic, social and environmental crises and the imminent threat of war, will speak at the fourth annual Pathways to Peace lecture series at Kennesaw State University today from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in Room 1000 in Prillaman Hall.

Hunter has been a Virginia educator for more than 30 years and is author of World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements, which was featured in a documentary about the eight-week transformation his public school students encountered as they learned to collaborate, compromise and communicate to resolve the game’s conflicts and discovered they share a deep interest in taking care of each other and the world.

The Pathways to Peace lecture is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. Tickets available at kennesaw.edu/uc/adp/peace.html.

The Pathways to Peace lecture series has featured some of the world’s foremost human rights activists, progressive corporate leaders and peace advocates across the globe.
