Yellowknife Centre Open!

Written by  Robert Stewart

I am currently in Yellowknife preparing for a lot of meetings on the new Yellowknife Centre for Holistic Development – the doors are now open for service.  The response has been overwhelming, I am happy to say.

Background information is copied below.  Web page links are: http://www.peace.ca/yellowknife.htm and its link to http://www.peace.ca/process.htm (the latter gives some background on our experience which I bring to this project).

I am hosting meetings this week as follows:

YELLOWKNIFE CENTRE FOR HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT – info and discussion meetings on the proposed new Centre will be held Tuesday Nov 2 7pm, Wednesday Nov 3 10am, 2pm and 7pm at the new “Peace Building” (old MacKay Building), 2nd Floor, 4910 – 50th Street.  I will also be available throughout the days Thursday Nov

Bob is a Chartered Accountant and Certified Management Consultant by profession.  He has held many senior management positions in business and government over the past 36 years. His passion for peace was ignited by his involvement in the Rotary International convention that took place in Calgary in 1996.  The message that he heard was "peace is the most worthwhile cause, and you should do something".  Since that time, Bob has founded the Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace and leads the Canadian Culture of Peace Program.  His peace website at www.peace.ca <http://www.peace.ca/>   has been ranked number 1 by Google with over 50,000 visitors per month, and he has been referred to as "the foremost peace educator in Canada". In 2000, Bob was the recipient of the YMCA Peace Award at the annual presentation in Calgary.

Bob recognized, as do others, that the Culture of Peace Program is on the threshold of making a major impact pacifically, nationally and internationally, but is currently lacking direction and capacity. He has devoted himself to using his professional skills as a (general) manager and information manager to help advance this 'direction and capacity' by founding the Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace, the Canadian Culture of Peace Program, annual national and provincial peace education conferences, and Peace Cafés.

He has 3 children, a key influence on Bob's decision to 'make a difference with his life' during the International Decade for Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.
