Activists to meet in Couchiching to seek constructive action

Gordon Ball — July 1984

Project Ploughshares (National) and the Orillia Ploughshares group will be sponsoring the Couchiching Peacemakers Conference which is scheduled for August 17 – 21 at Geneva Park YMCA Centre on Lake Couchiching, near Orillia, Ontario. The conference is designed for members of local peace groups who are looking for ways to increase their effectiveness as peacemakers.

Organizers of the event are intending to reach people interested in building their emotional and spiritual resources to overcome despair, either in themselves or in people around them, and who are seeking to develop a clearer, more positive vision of the peaceful and just world they are trying to create.

They are also placing an emphasis on hard information, so that participants will have opportunities to increase their confidence and competence as informed and skilled disarmament I development educators.

The Couchictiing Peace Conference aims to assist local groups to move beyond simply being a force “against” toward becoming part of a positive, constructive social movement.

Geneva Park, (long-time host of the annual “Couchiching Conference” organized by the Couchiching Institute for Public Affairs) is located. 90 miles north of Toronto. For more information, or to register, contact Adam Thompson at 705/xxx-xxxx, or Jacqueline Jenkins at Geneva Park (Toronto direct line), xxx-xxxx.
