Revised April 16, 2018

The Balsillie School and Project Ploughshares are pleased to screen the award-winning 2016 documentary A Bold Peace which presents the unique political and cultural history of Costa Rica. Over 60 years ago, Costa Rica became one of the only nations in the world to disband their military and to redirect national resources towards education, health, and the environment. A Bold Peace challenges our thinking about war and peace. This inspiring film also shows how this small Central American country has become on an international leader on diplomacy, disarmament, environment and climate change.
