Tuesday, September 22, 2015

In the theme of innovation in the Waterloo region we, at the MSCU Centre for Peace Advancement, are happy to announce that our Director, Paul Heidebrecht was featured in a local magazine this morning. Found in the Waterloo Region Record, Paul co-authored and collaborated with two other social innovators from the University of Waterloo community: Karla Boluk and Tania Del Matto. 

The article focused on three innovative on-campus sites including the Centre for Peace Advancement, housed by Conrad Grebel University College and urged the local community to continue realizing the importance of innovation.

We want to shine a spotlight on these social innovations, and do more to nurture this aspect of the region of Waterloo's innovation ecosystem. We have to harness and channel the passions and skills of a new generation of changemakers to tackle the biggest and most pressing problems of our day.

Karla Boluk is an assistant professor in the faculty of applied health sciences, Tania Del Matto is the director of GreenHouse, and Paul Heidebrecht is the director of the Mennonite Savings and Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement.
