  • How does this project connect to the City of Oshawa’s Diversity and Inclusion Plan?

    8 months ago

    In late 2017, the City of Oshawa approved its first Diversity and Inclusion Plan. Under the section of Community Development, the action item to “Consider the development of a Human Rights/Peace Garden” is identified and is connected to the original Council directive.

  • Why is the City of Oshawa investigating the development of a Garden of Human Rights/ Peace Garden?

    8 months ago

    The City of Oshawa is investigating the development of a Garden of Human Rights / Peace Garden based on an Oshawa City Council directive in 2016.  This Council motion directed Community Services staff to “investigate and report back on the development of a Human Rights/Peace Garden to be designed and implemented in an appropriate, contemplative park area, such as the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens” (Council Meeting, June 13, 2016).
