Powerful stories shared on YouTube

The entire Sol Kanee Lecture Series on International Peace and Justice is now available online for viewing at the University of Manitoba YouTube channel (youtube.com/umanitoba).

The inspiring annual lecture is organized by the Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace and Justice, housed in St. Paul’s College at the University of Manitoba.

Over the years the series has hosted prominent speakers, thinkers and activists on peace and justice from around the globe. The lectures are inspirational and moving, often based on real-life stories about the possibilities for peace within or following harrowing political conflict, and for understanding amidst strife.

The series began in 2002 with His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan who presented his talk “From a Culture of Participation to a Culture of Peace,” and went on to include other notable presenters such as The Honourable Flora MacDonald speaking on peace-building and development in Afghanistan in 2008, The Honourable Lloyd Axworthy on global citizenship in 2003 and Chief Oren Lyons with his 2007 lecture, “The Politics of Human Beings: The Nature of Global Warming.”
