Landmines Youth Symposium

"No more"

Landmines Youth Symposium

November 30, 2007

December 3, 2007 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Ottawa Treaty, the international treaty to ban the production and use of landmines. Canada and Canadians played a lead role in this momentous and global effort to save lives and help make the world safer and more humane. Thanks to this treaty, thousands of lives have been saved and millions of mines have been removed. Moreover the “Ottawa process” has served as a catalyst for rethinking the nature of security and the means by which we may structure responses to other international crisis.

Global College, the vehicle for The University of Winnipeg’s international initiatives, is dedicated to the development of global citizenship in our students and in our Winnipeg community. In keeping with our mandate to establish a succession planning approach to global issues such as the land mines ban, and to commemorate and celebrate this occasion, Global College, University of Winnipeg is planning a Landmines Action Week for November 28 – 30, 2007.
