Kent State University at Stark invites the community to the first event of the Featured Speakers Series’ 23rd season. Education activist John Hunter will present World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Timken Great Hall, located in The University Center at Kent State Stark, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
Tickets are required for this free Featured Speakers Series lecture. Tickets may be obtained by visiting the Kent State Stark Information Desk in Main Hall, beginning Monday, Sept. 16 at 8 a.m., while supplies last. A limit of four (4) tickets will be distributed per person. Phone reservations will not be accepted.
John Hunter, a teacher, musician and filmmaker, is the inventor of the World Peace Game. During a compelling TEDTalk, which was selected by TED and the Huffington Post as “the most influential idea of 2011,” he explained how this challenging game of collaboration and communication encourages students to explore the ideals of global harmony while accepting the reality of violence. Both the Secretary of Defense and the United Nations have requested him to speak, and at a recent conference, Bill Gates was honored to open for him. Hunter’s project is chronicled in the critically acclaimed documentary, World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements.
