Orange Dialogue for Peace

If you have ever experienced an unresolved intergroup conflict that you would like to explore, if ethnic/religious/territorial conflict is or was a part of your life, or if you are simply interested in fun interaction with an inclusive group of students and being part of a unique story-telling experience, then please consider participating in the Orange Dialogue for Peace program.

The program is free and open to undergraduate students. Participants work together in the context of fun, outdoor challenges and teambuilding activities, and engage in student driven dialogue about the needs, concerns, fears and hopes of their present day lives, nations and societies. The goal is to establish mutual understanding and trust, and help to lead the world to move toward sustainable world peace and friendship. Plus, students will participate in outdoor activities, including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sauna and polar plunge!

Program Includes:

  • Round-trip travel from Syracuse University to Raquette Lake in the Adirondack Mountains
  • Indoor and outdoor teambuilding with seasonal activities including: sauna, polar plunge into the frozen lake, canoeing, kayaking and hiking
  • Narrative (story-based) mediation and dialogue sessions
  • Moonlight hike
  • Lodging
  • Meals
