The first Toronto Peace Tree Mini-Conference, supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education, was held on October 2, 2012 at the Multi-faith Centre at the University of Toronto in honour of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. Peace Tree Ambassadors from nine school disctricts from across Ontario attended the conference in order to learn how to create inclusive, equitable and peaceful schools through the Peace Tree Spirit!
The student Peace Tree Ambassadors learned how to start their Peace Tree Club's and celebrate the Peace Tree Spirit by discovering the world of diversity focusing on the arts and fusion. They experienced a taste of diversity, a fusion performance of ballet and Bharatnatyam classical Indian dance and Peace Tree Workshops to help them learn how to celebrate Peace Tree Day in their own cities and schools.
Join the Peace Tree Spirit and discover the world of diversity through the arts and literacy and empower young people to be leaders for social justice issues!
