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.


Peace Incubator start-ups display progress and promise
The heartbeat of the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement's work is mobilizing impactful, collaborative social innovation efforts to advance peace. Participants in the Centre's Epp Peace Incubator program pair their expertise with the Incubator's support to catapult their ventures to new heights. Over the past couple months, Lunaria Solutions, GeoMate, and PASS (Panic, Anxiety, + Stress Support) have received external affirmation for their progress and promise.

Check out the Centre's update on the recent successes of these Incubator participants.
