High School Peace Day: Nonviolent Action in Action
Mar 6 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm

Join the Peace and Conflict Studies program at Grebel for a one-day event exploring both principled and pragmatic approaches to nonviolent activism for social change. Learn both historical and contemporary examples of how nonviolence was used to bring about change with Professor Marlene Epp and Visiting Professor Eric Lepp, and build practical nonviolence skills with The Ripple Effect Education to take action in school, community, and the world.
Teachers and students with an interest for any of the following questions should be at this event!

How do you resist violent systems with nonviolent action?
Do you want to know how to respond with nonviolent action to climate change, oppressive regimes, and bullying?
Do you want to know what actions can come next now that you’ve gone to the Global Climate Strike?
Do you want to understand the strategies that student protests around the world using? 
When is nonviolence the best strategic option? What are its limitations?
Where does “clicktivism” and “slackdivism” fit into what our world needs?

There is a $5.00 registration fee per participant.

Pizza lunch will be provided!

For details or to RSVP please contact Rebekah DeJong, Student Life and Recruitment Coordinator at rjdejong@uwaterloo.ca.
