UPEACE students in Costa Rica talk about intercultural competence

Our ‘Why’

There is a strong need for more changemakers in this world, and we believe that everyone has the potential to make a difference. At the Centre, we empower people to use their passions and strengths to be agents of change. We help them see their own potential and develop the skills, mindsets and networks to make a positive impact on the interconnected world in which we live.

Our ‘How’

We offer transformative educational experiences that enable people to make positive change, leading to a more peaceful world.

At the Centre, we often help changemakers define their own ‘why,’ ‘how,’ and ‘what,’ drawing off of Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle. To learn more about our ‘what,’ check out the ‘For Individuals‘ and ‘For Organizations‘ tabs above to learn more about our educational offerings.

“Education, we believe, holds the key to a world in which peace is sustained and is sustainable.”
