In light of Remembrance Day, local innovation hub Communitech saw it fit to reflect on the notion of "tech for good" and the enormous potential for technology to encourage peace. The Centre for Peace Advancement is found at this very intersection—innovation, entrepreneurship, and peacebuilding—and plays a key role in Waterloo Region through its PeaceTech endeavors.
In the spirit of Peace Week 2020's theme "Shaping Peace Together", Centre staff, participants, and partners have been relflecting together on their peacebuilding journeys in a series of Circle conversations.
The Centre has been releasing sections of these conversations in a series of short, documentary-style videos. Watch the second episode and the concluding third episode of this inspiring series.
