The Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement is excited to be supporting the newly launched PeaceTech Living-Learning Community at Conrad Grebel University College. For the past several years we have connected with Grebel students enrolled in a range of academic programs who are eager to reflect critically on the impact of technology on our world, and are yearning to apply their creativity to advance peace.
There is never a shortage of PeaceTech-related events to attend, either on our campus or in our wider community.
