CONFLICT RESOLUTION DAY

Oct 21st is CONFLICT RESOLUTION DAY

Do One Thing to Make the World a Better Place


Each Year ACR celebrates Conflict Resolution Day the third Thursday of October

This year it is October 21, 2021

The tree was designed as a symbol to celebrate growth in Conflict Resolution. The first year, start small, but just like the tree the seeds you plant one year, will continue to grow and blossom each year.

Conflict Resolution Day was conceived in 2005 by ACR to:

  • Promote awareness of mediation, arbitration, conciliation and other creative, peaceful means of resolving conflict;
  • Promote the use of conflict resolution in schools, families, businesses, communities, governments and the legal system;
  • Recognize the significant contributions of (peaceful) conflict resolvers;
  • Obtain national synergy by having celebrations happen across the country and around the world on the same day.

October has become a time to promote and celebrate peaceful conflict resolution practices worldwide. Dedicated dispute resolution practitioners are helping to educate the public about mediation and other innovative conflict management processes. The ABA declared the third week of October, “ABA Mediation Week,” in part building on the efforts of many other national, state, and local organizations, including the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) which have been celebrating conflict resolution during the month of October.

RIMA, ABA and ACR, as well as numerous other organizations, are working to raise awareness of the importance of mediation and conflict resolution.
