Our teaser, 1:34, for the Oct. 2021 ROTARY-Vergangenheitsbewältigungs- Conference, is also a ‘declaration of love’ towards Northfield.
You are cordially invited to the Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference to be held in Northfield, Minnesota in October 2021. With the world in a constant state of turmoil, opportunities to meet with others to promote mutual understanding and peace have become increasingly rare. Yogi Reppmann and Tony Conn are organizing an international Rotary work conference on the subject of “Dealing with the Past, - VERGANGENHEITSBEWAELTIGUNG” which will take place as a hybrid event (attendance/video) in October 2021 in Northfield, Minnesota (forty miles south of Minneapolis). The discussion points at the conference will concern how to find appropriate ways of dealing with the dark chapters of history. Four hundred years of slavery in the New World will be discussed, as well as Germany's confrontation with the Holocaust. At our conference set in idyllic Northfield, Minnesota you will be able to experience all of the amenities of small-town America including two prestigious colleges, a vibrant downtown, and all that you might need within walking distance. We hope very much to see you at the Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference in Northfield, MN, on October 19-22, 2021!
