Peace Revolution’s Self-Development Program has been recently categorized among the top 20 projects as Honorable Mention in the Compassion and Technology Contest organized by CCARE – The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education of Stanford University. The contest was a call for technology designs that help people learn, practice, and/or improve one or more of the following qualities; Compassion, Empathy, Social connection and Altruism.
On December 6th, 2013, Peace Revolution was invited to present the program at a Special Exhibition to the first-ever Compassion and Technology Conference in Stanford University, which is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, California. Our Peace Architect, Marco Bermudez from Colombia, a representative of Peace Revolution at the conference, introduced the Self-Development Program to the attendees as an online tool, that, not only enable the participants to learn and engage in meditation, but also improving their habits and increasing their awareness of their relationship with their family, colleagues, community and society.
During the conference, social entrepreneurs, designers, engineers and academic officers, were exploring the ways to use technology, mobile devices, internet and social media to help create a more compassionate society.
The event was successful and very satisfying to all participants, especially our Peace Agents and Architect.
