PeaceTech explores the intersection of peace-building and technology—critically reflecting on the social impact of technology and fostering the creation of “tech for good.”
The Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement hosts a “living-learning community” for creators, innovators, and collaborators. This community is made of 1st – 5th year undergraduate university students in diverse programs of study who seek to apply their creativity to advance peace.
In our Epp Peace Incubator, new ventures such as Demine Robotics, EPOCH, SheLeads, and WorldVuze are creating technologies that contribute to realizing a more peaceful world. At the same time, core collaborating organizations such as Project Ploughshares are critically reflecting on the implications of technology on humanity.
The Centre for Peace Advancement has created fertile ground for student engagement with these participants.
