Announcing the 2013

Canadian School of Peacebuilding

Come this summer to learn with peacebuilders – local and international, young and old, students, practitioners, and those new to peacebuilding – at the fifth annual Canadian School of Peacebuilding.  We invite you to participate in your choice of five-day courses for personal inspiration, professional development, or academic credit.  You can apply now at http://csop.cmu.ca/index.php/registration/.


The fifth annual Canadian School of Peacebuilding (CSOP), a program of Canadian Mennonite University (CMU), will be held in Winnipeg, MB, June 17-21 and 24-28, 2013.  Two 5-day sessions, each with three courses running concurrently, will be offered for training or for academic credit.  The CSOP is designed to be an environment characterized by (a) education for peace and justice, (b) learning through thinking and doing, (c) generous hospitality and radical dialogue, and (d) the modeling of invitational community.  The Canadian School of Peacebuilding is for people from all faiths, countries and identity groups.


Registration is now available at http://csop.cmu.ca/index.php/registration/.  More information is available at csop.cmu.ca or by e-mailing [email protected].  Please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested.


We are delighted to again be able to offer courses taught by expert and engaging instructors who are committed to peace work. We hope you will consider joining us.
