Peace Week began when Conrad Grebel University College initiated a series of community events for the week surrounding the International Day of Peace. Since 2017, Conrad Grebel University College has been opening up this initiative to Kitchener-Waterloo and beyond.
Conrad Grebel University College invites you to continue to make Peace Week a region-wide celebration by attending an event in your community or planning your own event to mark the occasion your way!
Some 2018 Peace Week highlights include a STEAM for Peace event at Waterloo Public Library, a yoga class at Queen Street Yoga, and the Grand River Water Walk. Learn more at Peace Week | University of Waterloo.
Every year WR Nonviolence celebrates the International Day Of Peace by making a human peace sign.
There will be a Peace Song Singalong, reading inspirational messages written by leaders of the Peace Movement such as Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, and, of course, people working together to display the international symbol for peace.
Instead of creating a Human Peace Sign this year, WR Nonviolence will be holding a “Supplemental” Discussion Night — supplementary to our regular meetings.
Discussion will be wide-ranging: How can we implement a Personal Peace? How can we implement Global Peace? What can we do to overcome the obstructions that prevent Peace?
If time permits, we may form a Human Peace Sign to commemorate the International Day of Peace.
This coming Wednesday Fair Vote Waterloo is holding its Discussion Night at the Blackwing Coffee Bar in Cambridge, one of several places in Canada that’s holding a referendum on Electoral Reform. They’ll meet up with the team from the Yes! Cambridge campaign. Who knows, there may be some people that you recognize!
They’ll discuss what the members of Fair Vote Waterloo can do to help the referendum campaigns in Cambridge, Kingston, and British Columbia happening now, and in PEI with their provincial election in October 2019.

When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The International Day of Non-Violence is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of non-violence.
