War: How We Buy + Sell It and The Impact on Women + Children: with Dr. Samantha Nutt, Founder of War Child PRETTYSMART

    • Society & Culture

As we watch a war in Ukraine unfold before our eyes, there is one woman who believes that while humans are responsible for all war we are also the only ones with the power to stop it. Dr. Samantha Nutt is the founder of Warchild USA, an organization that aims to help children in war torn communities taking a long term approach to breaking the cycle of poverty and violence. Dr. Nutt has worked in dozens of conflict zones and is a leading voice on current affairs, international aid and foreign policy. Dr. Nutt has worked with children and their families at the frontline of many of the world’s major crises – from Iraq to Afghanistan, Somalia to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sierra Leone to Darfur, Sudan. Today she is here to share her experiences and help educate us on what we must know about when it comes to war and ways we can help stop the cycle of war around the world. 

She shares:
Working in war zones and how it opened her up to the large scale problems of war. 
Why we are all implicated in the suffering and abuse that civilians living in war experience every day (and what we can do to change that).
How we are unknowingly complying with war - and even profiting from it. 
How living through war affects the generations that come after.
Why it’s not enough to want to do the right thing (and things you CAN do to help war zones)
The biggest lessons living through wars has taught her about life.
The problem with only focusing on short-term needs when wars break out. 
Why we can’t forget about other areas of conflict in the world even if the media is only focusing on Ukraine. 
Ways to help even if you don’t have money to give.
