I'm using "time" here to mean "era".

Andrew, are you aware that the title contains two identical options? In any case, some context would be required to answer your question.
Oops. Meant to ask "In our time" vs. "In our times".
I currently have: "There's no room for conflict in our time." But you could pluralize it; not sure which (if either) is superior.
Both expressions are correct. I think "in our time" works finely to mean "in this era." Indefinite as both phrases are, I think the plural makes "in our times," which seems to be less common that "in our time," even more indeterminate, similar to the more common "in these times." My impression is that you may want to use the singular or the plural depending on whether you want to sound more or less precise, respectively.
Here's some good statistics from Ngram Viewer to support my claim about the frequency of occurrence of both expressions:
Thanks! I'll go with the singular; sounds better to me for some reason.
The reason might be you want to sound less vague.
That's true! I want to refer to 2020s and 2030s and up to like 2050...maybe beyond...but definitely a period of a few decades.
