12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wellness - Come as You Are Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.  The course will be taught by faculty member Carolyn Hotchkiss, who has studied Yang and Sun style Tai Chi for five years, and is certified to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis.

12:30 PM - 2:00 PM Peace Through Entrepreneurship: A Conversation with Steven Koltai

Join The Lewis Institute's Cheryl Kiser along with Professors Candy Brush and Donna Kelley on Tuesday, October 11 from 12:30-2 pm in the Needham Wellesley Room as they welcome Steven Koltai, former Senior Advisor for Entrepreneurship in the U.S. State Department, to discuss his new book: ‘PEACE THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Investing in a Startup Culture for Security and Development.’ You can bring your lunch, and light fare and desserts will be provided.

About Peace Through Entrepreneurship:
This fall will mark the 15th anniversary of 9/11. We need no reminder that terror and extremism – violent, Islamic, or otherwise – loom over American life, pervading citizens’ thoughts, presidential campaigns, and news cycles. For decades, the U.S. has sent negotiators, money, military hardware, and troops to the Middle East. But peace never lasts. What are we missing?

Steven R. Koltai, former Senior Advisor for Entrepreneurship in the Hillary Clinton State Department, repeat successful entrepreneur, and Brookings Institution guest scholar, offers a simple answer: jobs. In the world’s most troubled regions – especially in the Middle East and North Africa – tens of millions of un- and under-employed young people lead lives of economic frustration and idleness. Instability and terror breed where young people cannot find jobs. Joblessness – not religious or cultural conflict – is the root cause of the unrest that vexes American foreign policy and the country’s security.

In his new book, PEACE THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Investing in a Startup Culture for Security and Development (Brookings Press), Koltai argues for the significant elevation of “entrepreneurship in the service of foreign policy.” By bolstering startup activity in fragile and developing markets, the U.S. can leverage its expertise in innovation to generate economic opportunity for legions of frustrated young people. Extremism will not be resolved by a war on terror or even by coalition governments and democracy. Required instead is viable economic opportunity. Peace through Entrepreneurship explains exactly how U.S. foreign policy can be reshaped to make it happen.
