Peace Cafés are safe community spaces dedicated to developing a Culture of Peace at the community level through dialogue, conversation, workshops, and a library of peace resources along with wholesome food and drink options. Currently there are 3 primary locations - Hamilton (Ontario), San Francisco (CA), and Walkerton (Ontario). Numerous other movements to develop peace cafes in other communities (Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg, Victoria, Nelson) are underway.
Peace Cafe follows the six key principles of non-violence, based on Manifesto 2000 for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence (www.unesco.org). For more details, resources, and a documentary on getting a peace cafe started in your own community go to: www.peacecafe.ca
