Learn about Conflict Resolution Day

Conflict Resolution Day is a global event, intended to promote the concept of peaceful conflict resolution. Created in 2005 by the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR), it is now an annual celebration.

Primarily an educational event, the main purpose of Conflict Resolution Day is to increase awareness of the various peaceful, non-violent methods of conflict resolution available, such as mediation and arbitration. In addition, the ACR hopes to promote their use in various different avenues of life, including in schools, workplaces, within the legal system and even amongst families.

The Association for Conflict Resolution, alongside various independent organisations, host informative events all over the world, so check the event listings in your local area and see if you can attend one.

If not, why not spend the day learning about the contributions of some of history’s great peaceful conflict mediators?

Such incredibly valuable work and life lessons to take out into the world – into all sections of society but especially to our primary schools so that young children can learn the art of peaceful negotiation. Understanding challenging, emotional and at times apparently unkind/risky/cruel behaviour in relation to the context and the needs of others that aren’t being met is powerful. Being enabled and encouraged to express your own needs in calm, understandable ways is life transforming in our homes, schools, colleges, workplaces, streets and communities.
