Ottawa Peace Talks

April 19, 2016


The Ottawa Peace talks were a resounding success! 

Organized under the theme “Let’s build peace through diversity”, the Ottawa Peace Talks aimed to inspire reflection and discussion about how respect for diversity can promote more peaceful societies through inclusion, both in Canada and globally. This event marked the first time the Peace Talks were held in Canada. 

Speakers from diverse backgrounds shared their personal experiences, stories and ideas highlighting the importance of building peace through broad and diverse participation.
