TRC for PCR aims to promote values, ideas, and methods
 of non-violent communication and
 peaceful conflict resolution world-wide,
and
to provide information about
related resources available locally to Greater Toronto Area residents.

We wish to cover a wide spectrum of situations which could benefit from peaceful communication and conflict resolution skills,
 and to present thoughts of various cultures about the importance of
peaceful co-existence.


FUTURE PLANS: To provide a searchable database of resources on the website, 
                                and to establish real-life library premises

TO GET BETTER AT GETTING ALONG

  study
  •  our rich resources of traditions and cultures
  •  the results of new research and discoveries
                  realize
  • we are all interconnected
  • each of us is important
  • each of us is different
                         teach
  • understanding and empathy
  • effective communication
  • peaceful conflict resolution
             promote
  • co-operation
  • conflict prevention
  • timely intervention

 


What people often mean by getting rid of conflict is getting rid of diversity, and it is of utmost importance that these should not be considered the same. We may wish to abolish conflict, but we cannot get rid of diversity. Fear of difference is fear of life itself.  Mary Parker Follett
