Hi Sierra, yes, education is crucial in the context of music, business and peace and the kind of change we want to achieve collectively. Formal education, but also all types, including as you wrote “to educate each other.”
There is much to learn about how music and musicking works, how business can be beneficial ethically and humanly, and then there is the whole aspect of peace studies. For instance, nobody can impose a definition of “peace” or “peacebuilding.” But if our goal is “to educate each other,” then the fact that we are willing to discuss about those concepts, realities, differences and potentials is a major step forward, infinitely better than sweeping all this under the carpet… so I definitely vote for educating each other, taking turns listening and learning in the style of Brazilian educator Paulo Freire…
From the point of view of bfp, our current challenge is entitled “How can business help build the cultural foundations for peace?” Cultural foundations are all about how we see the world, how we think and process information, how we communicate, what we believe in… “educating each other” is the key.
What comes to mind if you had to answer this question: "what are all the possible ways in which music and musicking can facilitate the processes necessary in order to massively educate each other? I’m definitely all ears
