Centre participants gather to reflect on peacebuilding journeys
In honour of Peace Week 2020, the Centre has been gathering together representatives from our Core Collaborators, Incubator, Mentorship Circle, and staff team in a series of circle conversations. These circles have allowed community members to explore the values, challenges, and questions that they are currently grappling with about their peace and justice work.
The Centre has captured the spirit of the these conversations in a short series of videos, the first having been released this month. Watch it on our Peace Week webpage.
