Educating for Peace and Justice ConferenceJulian Falconer presenting at the conference in 2010.


The Educating for Peace and Justice: Action for Safe and Equitable Classrooms, Schools and Communities conference is an exciting teacher professional development event usually held in September at OISE/U of T in Toronto. It has been held for seven years and continues to educate teachers and teacher candidates about social justice issues in the school and community.

The goal of the conference is to enable participants to share, learn, and try out ideas, strategies, and best practices related to actively building safe and equitable classrooms, schools and communities.  To meet the needs of educators new to peacemaking and social justice activism in education, we are inviting highly interactive workshops to help bridge the gap between theory and practice, focused especially on school settings and on facilitating their own diverse students’ learning/ participation in building nonviolent and equitable communities. Concurrent workshops (approximately 20-35 participants) will involve hands-on skill-building activities, sample teaching/learning resources, teaching guidelines, and participatory critical discussions on various approaches to safer schools, conflict resolution, peacemaking, equity, diversity, and social justice in education.
