News & Events

Science for Peace members organize and host many Meetings, Forums, Workshops and Teach-Ins where important peace and justice issues are discussed. From time to time, we join with other groups — in particular, with the Canadian Pugwash Group — as co-sponsors and co-organizers. These events are typically open to the public who are also encouraged to participate in the planning and in the event itself.

The Eric Fawcett Memorial Forum, held annually, honours Science for Peace’s co-founder, and deals with subjects important to civil society and with the Government of Canada. This forum includes presentation of papers by scholars, discussions, and an interface with government officials and policy makers.
