Peace Week at Conrad Grebel — #IDOPAN @GrebelCPA
Sep 17 – Sep 22 all-day

Peace Week | Sept 17-22, 2018 Every year, on September 21, the world celebrates the International Day of Peace.

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.

We’ll meet at the Coffee Culture coffee shop in the Walper Hotel at the corner of King Street and Queen Street in downtown Kitchener. Map

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 logoInternational Day of Peace.
