- all welcome!
When: 1:30 - 3:30 pm, Monday, September 20, 2010

In July 2010, Peaceful Schools International
(http://peacefulschoolsinternational.org/), Mount Saint Vincent University,
and 10 other peace partners organzied a peace conference, Being the Change:
Building a Culture of Peace (see
http://www.msvu.ca/en/home/aboutus/PeaceConference/default.aspx/ for more
information about the conference). As a follow up to this conference,
Peaceful Schools International would like to invite you to a meeting on
Monday, September 20, 1:30-3:30 pm, Room 404 Seton Building, Mount Saint
Vincent University to discuss next steps on the following:
* Creating a forum for networking for organizations and individuals who do
work connected to peace education, inclusion, social and emotional learning,
anti-bullying, social justice, and other related topics.
* Developing a collaborative dialogue with the Ministry of Education about
peace education in Nova Scotia schools and how existing organizations can
better support and enhance work already being done.
* Creating (or adding to an existing source) and disseminating a 'menu' of
available community programming that can enhance existing efforts to promote
peace and inclusion in schools by the Ministry of Education, school boards
and individual schools.
If you are not able to attend but would like to be kept updated on the
outcomes and any future meetings, please let me know (Clare Levin,
