Every year, on September 21, the world celebrates the International Day of Peace.

Peace Week began when Conrad Grebel University College initiated a series of community events for the week surrounding the International Day of Peace. Since 2017, we have been opening up this initiative to Kitchener-Waterloo and beyond.

We invite you to continue to make Peace Week a region-wide celebration by attending an event in your community or planning your own event to mark the occasion your way!

Some 2018 Peace Week highlights include a STEAM for Peace event at Waterloo Public Library, a yoga class at Queen Street Yoga, and the Grand River Water Walk. Learn more.
