World Beyond War asks us: We’re against war, but what do we replace it with? Let’s design and build an alternative system of global governance–one in which peace is pursued by peaceful means. Learn how at #NoWar2018 in Toronto!
Join World BEYOND War for the #NoWar2018 annual global conference this September 21-22, during the CNV Week of Actions. Explore how the rule of law has been used both to restrain war and to legitimize it—and how to re-design systems to abolish the institution of war and uphold human and ecological justice.
Plenaries and workshops will cover topics such as Canadian wars, weapons, and indigenous rights; tax resistance; creative activism; divestment from war profiteers; people’s tribunals; departments and other national infrastructures of peace; citizen action using the rule of law against war; and more.
Featured speakers include:
The conference kicks off on Friday, September 21, the International Day of Peace, and concludes with a Blue Scarf March for Peace on Sunday, September 23.
