About Ushana Jayasuriya

Hi, my name is Ushana. I am currently studying towards an MA in Philosophy - my thesis is exploring Climate Justice. I became interested in the World Peace Organisation through my studies of international law and a paper I am currently tutoring in called International Ethics. When I saw an opportunity to be a Correspondent I thought this would be a great opportunity to explore current events and possible peaceful solutions. I believe that there can be a peaceful world and a change in attitudes is required. This change often occurs through greater knowledge of the options available. I hope through my role here, I will be able to assist in these goals by exploring these alternative options to violence and conflict.
