2009 Events

Here are 2009 events related to topics of interest - peace, sustainability, and education. These are events that I (Satoko) either organize, co-organize, participate, or am involved with in some capacity, either as an individual or representing Peace Philosophy Centre and/or Vancouver Save Article 9. Details of these events are subject to change. The upcoming event is at the top of the list, and the past events are at the bottom. Please email info@peacephilosophy.com for more information. Upcoming Events of 2009:

* "Peace Philosophy Salon" is held mostly on Saturday evenings at Peace Philosophy Centre in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It is an informal gathering in which we learn and discuss current issues of interest. Sometimes we watch documentary films together and other times we have guest speakers. We have basic structure of each event, but content and process are organic and flexible, depending on the needs and interests of participants. Satoko acts as a facilitator of dialogue and discussion. It is a space for mutual learning and empowerment.

*Peace Philosophy Centre's Year End Social on December 5 has been cancelled, due to the schedule of conflict with another event on the same evening.
