You’re Invited to 1st ever “UnConference” in FDR!
On May 4, 2016, FDRIO is hosting the first-ever “Unconference” in dispute resolution, taking place at The Centre for Social Innovation on Spadina Avenue in Toronto.
You’re being invited, as we want you to be a part of this unconventional event.
What is exciting about unconferences is that they are loosely structured, allowing for the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program of events.
May 4 will begin with those present proposing ideas. We then vote topics and the unconference begins.
Our theme, “FDR Without Borders”, welcomes a wide range of speakers and participants.
To get us started, we’ve lined up a couple of speakers you will want to hear, including Les Jacobs, Professor and Director of the Institute for Social Research at York University and Senior Research Fellow of the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice.
If you have an idea, presentation, topic, or innovation to present (or debate!) that is related to best practices in FDR, bring them with you. We want you and need you to be there!
The only drawback is that space is very limited – to the first 90 registrants. Our last conference sold out and we expect this one will too.
Admission is only $75 – $25 for students. And if you want to come only to our meet and greet afterwards, that too is only $25. (all plus HST).
You’ll have an opportunity to visit our display area, where thinkers, innovators, authors, artists and colleagues will promote their ideas and products to help you in your work.
And… you can also be a sponsor!
Please contact us if you have ideas or questions…we’d love to know that you’re interested. To register, visit www.fdrio.ca.
