Body Peace 2020
This conference is designed to challenge barriers, embolden conversation, and equip people with the tools to create lasting change in their lives and practice. Over the two days of the conference, Body Peace 2020 will offer three different areas of focus to be announced soon! Body Peace is centred around the lived experiences of those who with eating disorders and body images issues. It is a space to uplift and magnify the voices of those who have been underrepresented.
This conference is for anyone who is interested in learning more about eating disorders and body image including healthcare professionals, caregivers of someone who is struggling with an eating disorder or someone with lived experience of an eating disorder. It is designed to be accessible and practical.
Body Peace is being hosted on the virtual platform Zoom which allows us to reach a large audience, in a way that is widely accessible. Time, distance, and financial restraints all keep people from being able to participate in meaningful dialogue that can benefit their work, their relationships, or their own mental health.

Body Peace takes place on November 19 and 20th, 2020. This is our second annual conference!
