New Facebook Group Connects CDI Families Worldwide
Learning Life is pleased to announce we have just established a Facebook group to connect families, volunteers and observers interested in our developing Citizen Diplomacy Initiative (CDI).
Launched in August 2016, CDI engages lower-income American families, starting in Washington DC, in live internet dialogues and project collaborations with lower-income families in other nations to nurture more capable and caring global citizens. Since August, we have successfully conducted over 15 live dialogues and begun our first international, family-to-family collaboration — a photovoice project that will culminate in an electronic album presenting the families’ photographic answers to the question “what is the past, present and future of your community?” from their different vantage points in the world.
Learning Life has been posting news and educational content on our Facebook page since 2013, but our new Facebook group allows our CDI-participating families, volunteers and interested observers to comment and post photos, videos, and other information they wish to share from their different communities in the world. Currently, we have families and volunteers from Washington DC, Dakar (Senegal) and Jerash (Jordan) participating in the group. As CDI gradually expands, we look forward to the perspectives of more families and volunteers in more communities across the globe.
All interested observers are welcome to join our new Facebook group. Please note though that you will need to request to join the group in order to see the group’s posts. You can join the group here. While you are on Facebook, please also follow our Learning Life page. Thanks for your support!
