At the Edge: Creating Direction for Peace and Justice brings together people and organizations involved in educating and working with youth who recognize that in every act of violence and injustice there is a message that needs to be understood (Vanier, 2008). At the Edge Conference, participants will listen to and critically reflect on these messages, as well as be invited to commit to personal and organizational change.


This conference is a collaborative venture by the Faculty of Education, Memorial University, the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association and the Canadian Red Cross. In addition, several other education and social agencies are partnering with us, including the Department of Education, Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Eastern School District.

Plan NOW to attend and participate as a delegate or a presenter.
