Conflict Resolution and Remembrance Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th November 2014

November 1, 2014 | Nick Taylor

The impact of conflict can never be underestimated. In this, the 100th anniversary of the First World War , the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace will take the opportunity to look at the people and communities involved in and affected by conflict, terrorism and political violence and what lessons can be learned through trying to understand the wider consequences.

The event will draw on both your personal experiences and those of others to explore the impact of conflict and gain a greater insight into the communities affected by conflict and the different ways conflict impacts on people in the longer term.

You will have a chance to discuss the difficulties, challenges and even the positive outcomes that can follow such events.

As a day event you will also have the opportunity to stay overnight and continue the discussion and commemorate together on Remembrance Sunday by attending the Cenotaph in Warrington followed by lunch at the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Centre.

The event will take place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th November 2014 at the Peace Centre in Warrington.

Registration with refreshments will begin at 10.30am and the programme will start at 11am and continue to 5pm.

Those staying overnight will have continue the discussions and activities and depart after lunch.

This is a free event with food and accommodation provided.
