Our Rotary International President, Ian Riseley has made promoting peace a priority this year. As you may know, he is convening a series of six global presidential peace conferences and a culminating event in Toronto, the Rotary Peacebuilding Summit. There is a preconvention event on Friday and Saturday, 22-23 June 2018, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, the same location as our 2018 convention.
The event will feature world-class speakers including our Honourary Chair, Dr. Tererai Trent of Zimbabwe, Princess Zebu Jelani of Pakistan, Mimoza Kusari-Lila (the former Deputy Prime Minister of Kosovo), alumni of our Peace Centers program and many more. There will be panel discussions, interactive activities and dynamic entertainment centered around creating awareness of peacebuilding initiatives and helping attendees to find ways to take action.
The peacebuilding summit will be attended by Rotarians, young leaders, and Toronto community members.
