At LIDEISA, we recognize that our communities are characterized by inequalities, dishonesty, greed, discrimination and many other backward practices that really cause conflicts among citizens. Such status-quo, calls for urgent solutions rooted in skilling especially young people in reconciling diverse perspectives and interests, in local communities with sometimes, national, regional, continental and world implications.

It’s the reason, LIDEISA focuses energies on teaching learners how to become skilful at handling conflicts, dilemmas and trade-offs. They are for example, tutored on balancing equity and freedom, autonomy and community, innovation and continuity, and efficiency and the democratic process.

Striking a balance between competing demands will rarely lead to an either/or choice or even a single solution. Individuals will need to think in a more integrated way that evades premature conclusions and recognizes interconnections.

At LIDEISA, we know that in a world of interdependency, and conflict, citizens can successfully secure their own well-being and that of their families and communities only by developing the capacity to understand the needs and desires of others.

We are also aware that to be prepared for the future, individuals have to learn to think and act in a more integrated way, taking into account the interconnections and inter-relations between contradictory or incompatible ideas, logics and positions, from both short-and long-term perspectives. To be specific, LIDEISA models learners into systems thinkers with capacity and skills to reconcile conflicts and dilemmas.
