We work, regionally, nationally and internationally with HR professionals and those responsible for training and organisational development in voluntary and statutory agencies and in business.

Here is an example of one of our past conferences:

‘Seeds of Peace’ Conference

12 July 2022

10:00 am to 3:00 pm

New Vic Theatre, Etruria Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme, ST5 0JG

Supported by

Nottingham University and Birmingham University

PEACE is something all people across the globe say they wish for and value, but it seems to remain as difficult to achieve today as at any other point in history.

As a delegate you will see a new drama ‘My Thousand-Year-Old Land’ written using the testimonies of survivors from the genocide and war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina; participate in creative workshops; and help identify what we all must do in order to be creators of peace locally, nationally and internationally; you will also see and hear presentations about inspiring work being done locally and internationally.

Each delegate will make their own individual pledge as a creator of peace and leave the conference with the seeds of peace in their hands to sow in their own communities.
