PaixQuebecPeace 2008    Mon Feb 4, 2008, Montreal, QC

PaixQuébecPeace 2008

The Second Annual Conference on Peace Education in Québec (PaixQuébecPeace) will be held on Monday, February 4, 2008 at La Biosphère in Montréal, Québec.

The theme this year is "Being the Change: Can Canadians be Leaders in Peace?" Registration is now open.

In a culture of violence, fear, and militarism, how can our daily interactions promote a culture of peace rather than perpetuate the status quo?

The day long event at the Biosphere will feature group plenaries, small breakouts, and workshops to explore how we can transform the present culture into a more peaceful one.

* Peace as a Public Good: who benefits and who is responsible?
* Peace, Power, & the Press: deconstructing or reinforcing mainstream power structures?
* Interfaith Synergy: can productive crossovers between faiths exist?
* Inclusion of all Canadian Peoples: what voices need to be heard?
* Environmental Impacts: effects of our planetary relations?
* War begets war and peace begets peace: truth or fable?
