Ziauddin Yousafzai, Honorary Chair of the Global Peace Centre Canada (GPCC) and father to Malala Yousafzai, and Jahan Zeb, Executive Director of the GPCC, visit Google to discuss the GPCC and its vision and activism around the globe.

Hosted by Adam Green.--
In 2012, Malala Yousafzai was a 15 year old student and education rights activist in Northern Pakistan. As she rode the bus to school, a Taliban assassin shot her multiple times in an attempt to stop her and her message. Miraculously she survived and the result has been a tidal wave of support for education rights for children and girls not only in Pakistan, but the world over.

Malala and her family, including her father Ziauddin and mother Toor, have devoted their lives to promoting the right to education. In Canada, Ziauddin is the Honourary Chair of the GPCC that works to build a world at peace by providing peace education. Globally, this family, and especially Malala have become a beacon for hope and change. Malala was even captured in the International Women's Day Google Doodle this year along with other women's rights activists.

Who is the GPCC?
Established in 2015, the Global Peace Centre Canada (GPCC) is a Canadian incorporated not-for-profit organization that envisions "a world at peace." To that end, our mission is to "create hope and opportunity for positive societal change by providing peace education to the leaders of tomorrow." GPCC is housed in the MSCU Centre for Peace Advancement at Conrad Grebel University College on the campus of the University of Waterloo.
