A moment of silence is fine, but why not commemorate Remembrance Day
more proactively by learning the ways of peace? This year, Vancouver is
hosting two international events aimed at developing strategies for
educating children and youth on how to be peaceful as individuals, and
peace builders as citizens. The International Education for Peace Institute
will host the first International Education for Peace Conference from
November 14 to 17, as well as the Youth Peacebuilders Network Training
and Workshop from November 15 to 17. Both events will be held at
Century Plaza Hotel (1015 Burrard Street). Guest speakers include
University of Haifa professor Gavriel Salomon and Dr. Claire McGlynn
from Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
