A secure world without war. A just world at peace.

Ploughshares Calgary Society seeks to educate and encourage research to create mutual respect and understanding so as to contribute to human security and the peaceful resolution of conflicts. By holding educational events, engaging in advocacy and publishing a regular newsletter, we seek to build sustainable peace, encourage practical steps towards nuclear disarmament and minimize recourse to military force.

 

” . . . they shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war anymore.” – Isiah 2:4

 

Ploughshares Calgary aims to educate and encourage public discussion on:

  • Human security and nonviolent conflict resolution
  • Canadian foreign and defense policies
  • Nuclear disarmament, control of conventional arms, militarism and specific wars and interventions

We are a registered non-profit society in Alberta and gladly accept donations towards our work.
