This weekends show brought the local to international, then back to the local.
Elizabeth King graduated yesterday - a double degree Arts/Law with honours! In amongst all of that Elizabeth has a passion for human rights and social justice. She has pursued that passion by working with various NGOs and businesses across the human rights and environmental sustainability sector. She has recently returned from a three month internship in the Office of the Co-Prosecutors at the United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Cambodia.
How much have we, as a one humanity, made our focus about peace and ceasefires, to the detriment of asking what is actually going on, how did we get here? Is is time to ask about harmony and question the man made borders that we so diligently fight over, be they geological, philosophical, theosophical?
Elizabeth King started out learning about Social Justice at school, about the ethos of offering back to community and she has taken that beyond the classroom into the world.
This is a first hand account of going overseas, of working on a UN initiative as an intern and contributing to the prosecution of some of the key figures in the Pol Pot regimes genocide of the Cambodian people in the 70s. There are worrying similarities with what is going on in Syria today and much that we can learn.
Join us for an hour of amazing wisdom from Elizabeth, with warnings about tourism exploiting volunteers and communities, how much care we have to take of ourselves in situations like that and how we can be the change in the world.
Lucy Dahill is the presenter of Stay in the Loop with Lucy, she has a passion for offering people the platform to share their voice. Young, old or somewhere in between we all have wisdom to share if we trust our hearts over our heads.
