“What is Bob Stewart’s role, inspirations and motivation in this?”


1.       Bob Stewart has been working in Peace Education for 15 years.  He incorporated Canadian Centres for Teaching Peace (“CCTP”) and the web site http://www.peace.ca in 1997.  He currently makes his living as a Chartered Accountant and Certified Management Consultant in the NWT and Nunavut.

2.       With respect to Moncton Centre for Teaching Peace and Peace Cafe ("MCTP"), he wishes to serve his community (Moncton and the other communities of New Brunswick expected to be served by MCTP) by helping to advance peace consciousness, have a positive effect on people’s lives, and reduce the incidence of violence in the process.  He has gained knowledge that can benefit others, and wishes to share.

3.       This is part of an international initiative started by Bob Stewart – an initiative that Bob believes (based on his experience) will significantly benefit our communities and world.

4.       Bob believes a Moncton prototype, benefiting from the wisdom in this community, will take the international initiative and model to higher levels, and be of direct benefit to the other Peace Centres and Peace Cafés.

5.      His CCTP role is to act as a catalyst and facilitator to advance the concept of Peace Centres and Peace Cafés throughout the world, as necessary.  Until the Moncton Centre has a Life of its own with a local Board of Trustees (which is the goal), Bob’s initial role with MCTP is to act as catalyst and facilitator to plant the seeds, advance the idea locally, create safe space for the idea, nourish the concept (provide seed funding), and guard against the ills that could befall the Centre.

6.       Bob believes that MCTP will demonstrate its value, and develop viable, sustainable businesses where all involved will be paid a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.

8.       Bob believes consulting opportunities will arise as a result of MCTP, in which he would get remunerated a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.

9.       Based on his experience building www.peace.ca , conferencing and other Peace Cafés, Bob knows that working on building MCTP will help to build a better Bob, and have a positive influence on his children.
