Conflict Resolution Day
Conflict Resolution Day is an international celebration held on the third Thursday in October every year. In Alberta, a committee of representatives from both provincial government and community dispute resolution programs work together to support and promote events across the province.
Conflict Resolution Day was started in 2005 by the Association for Conflict Resolution in the United States to raise public awareness of creative and peaceful means of resolving conflict. Now communities around the world hold events to mark Conflict Resolution Day.
Let's Talk ADR
Our goal is to get Albertans talking about their options to work through conflict in a positive and productive way.
Let's Talk ADR. ADR sometimes stands for Appropriate Dispute Resolution because it describes options other than going to court, but as ADR has become mainstream we use the term Appropriate Dispute Resolution to describe all the choices available to prevent and manage conflict in a non-adversarial way, including: mediation, arbitration, and restorative practices.
