Welcome to Global Peace Centre Canada!


Icon Logo for Global Peace Centre Canada Welcome to Global Peace Centre Canada. GPCC is a nonprofit peacebuilding organization and is a member of the Centre for Peace Advancement, affiliated with Conrad Grebel University at the University of Waterloo. GPCC's work is inspired by Malala Yousafzai - Nobel Laureate 2014 and her father Ziauddin Yousafzai’s work for peace and education - supported by senior academics and civil society leaders including faculty members  associated with the Peace and Conflict Studies Department at the University of Waterloo, and the Faculty of Education and the Global Studies Department at Wilfrid Laurier University.

GPCC's purposes are to: A) Advance education and peacebuilding capacity in conflict-affected communities around the world; and B) Develop a culture in which peaceful conflict resolution and nonviolence are the norms in communities and societies.

GPCC's vision is "a world at peace" and its mission is "to foster societal transformation and fulfill human potential through education and peacebuilding." GPCC's activities are: 1) Development of academic and peace resources; 2) Dissemination of peace education for the betterment of communities and society; 3) Fostering peace skills in an inclusive way, especially involving young people, women, and minorities; & 4) Supporting community and societal transformation.

The GPCC team has initiated collaborative work on developing peace education resources, professional development of teachers, student and teacher exchange programs, and scholarships for young people with an equal participation of girls and women in Pakistan  and Canada. We plan to eventually scale up this work to possible project in the Middle East, Africa, and South America in successive phases.
