Living Together in the 21st Century is a curriculum-based education outreach project for 2nd-grade students originated by Nobel Peace Laureate, Elie Wiesel, with involvement by child activist, Jonathan Kozol, and created by Charlotte-Mecklenburg teachers. Living Together teaches problem-solving strategies, conflict resolution, and respect for others. The underlying mission of the project is to simultaneously begin to build compassion for people of all races, cultures, and backgrounds, and to teach life skills to young children that will prepare them to live in our society harmoniously. Living Together has been mandated as an integral part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg elementary school curriculum.
