Event description
The 2020 Voices for Peace conference aims to foster action and deepen hope in the midst of conflict and the global ecological crisis.

About this Event

As we witness conflict around the world and see the need for an urgent response to the global ecological crisis, we can feel overwhelmed and paralyzed. The 2020 Voices for Peace Conference focuses on sustaining and building hope while spurring action.

Keynote Speakers

JOHN DEAR

Renowned peace activist, author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee

SYLVIA KEESMAAT

Biblical scholar, author and teacher, and organic farmer

ANDREW WESLEY

Elder-in-Residence, Indigenous Student Services, University of Toronto

ESTHER WESLEY

In a unique approach, each of our speakers will respond to the following questions in three keynote sessions:

Session 1: "What inspires you and how does your spirituality inform your actions?"

Session 2: "What have we learned and where have we failed?"

Session 3: "What are the signs of hope you see?"
