Conflict Resolution Day is a worldwide event dedicated to promoting peaceful ways to resolve conflicts. Wars are still happening all over the world, but we hope that, as a society, we are moving towards communication and mediation as a better way to deal with problems. This holiday is a great opportunity for governments to have peace talks with nations they may not agree with. It is also a time to teach children about conflict resolution, so the next generation will have a better handle on keeping the peace. Conflict Resolution Day is celebrated on the third Thursday of October.
