Fare thee well
As the semester wraps up, our Centre is saying goodbye to Incubator Fellows Anna Kuepfer and Becca Cheskes. Anna, the co-founder of SheCycle, is finishing up her degree in Public Health, while Becca has just completed her final term in the Masters of Peace and Conflict Studies program.

Our Communications Assistant Kirsten Mosey will be transitioning into an Incubator Fellow role, and we will welcome back former co-op student Charity Nonkes as our second Fellow. Be sure to stop by in January to say hello to our new Communications Assistant, Victoria Lumax, as she joins us for a co-op term!

Thank you to Becca, Anna, and Kirsten for their contributions to the Centre this term!
Choosing dialogue as a mode for policy creation
What does it mean to dig into the hard questions facing our society? Project Ploughshares has answered that question through hosting polic labs across Canada focused on the future of Canadian defence and security policy.

By engaging stakeholders from across the spectrum in their inclusive and discussion-based labs, Ploughshares is able to foster collaboration on issues that Canadians feel are important in the coming years.

#12Days4Good, systemically

On Monday December 9th, the Centre for Peace Advancement kicked of Kindred Credit Union's 12 Days 4 Good social media campaign. Kindred Credit Union engaged partners across Waterloo Region by having each of them designate a day for an act of good.

The Centre for Peace Advancement team chose to focus on climate action at the University of Waterloo, and brought a systems-thinking lens to our act of good by drawing on our experience working with students on the Map the System competition. 

Read more our #12Days4Good act.

Supporting the next generation of Peace Innovators
The 2019-2020 Peace Innovators Scholarship and Mentoring Program is nearly half over! At the end of November, the seven high school students enjoyed a day-long retreat focused on further exploring their ideas and learning from one another.
