Twenty-four participants were at the Dialogue for Peaceful Change (DPC) programme, April 29 to May 4, 2007, at the Tatamagouche Centre in Nova Scotia, Canada. They came from First Nations communities, fishing organizations, student groups as well as some government agencies. They were all interested in finding new and inspiring ways to deal with conflicts in their many forms. Some were working on community conflicts over who has access to resources and who gets to decide; others wanted to learn how to address conflicts amongst colleagues in the workplace; and some were looking for ways to address conflict in their families, their lives and in the world around us. With the support of trainers from Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, Nova Scotia and Scotland, participants gained tools and skills to practice new ways of creating opportunities for dialogue, and ultimately ways to bring about resolution amongst conflictual individuals, parties or groups.
