CALL FOR SESSIONS
The seventh edition of Geneva Peace Week is proud to launch its call for applications. As an inclusive peacebuilding forum, we are looking forward to session applications covering the full spectrum of peacebuilding practice, topics, and contexts. There are several new features this year so even if you have participated in GPW in the past, please read this guidance carefully to find out more about key thematic directions, session formats as well as application guidelines and criteria.
"Rebuilding trust after disruption: Pathways to reset international cooperation": GPW20 aims to galvanize leadership, build trust and contribute to transforming international cooperation in the wake of covid-19. With peacebuilding priorities more urgent than ever, GPW20 will collectively reflect on questions including: What role should the peacebuilding community play in a new era of collaboration? How can peacebuilding actors and other partners gain strength, unity and vision to successfully build peace in a divided and turbulent world?
GPW20 sessions require focused preparation by session organizers. Sessions should follow one of three formats. For more information and complete criteria, please click on "Application Criteria" at the bottom of the page.
- Participative panel discussions
- Practical workshops
- Networking sessions
This year, Geneva Peace Week will be held in a hybrid form, meaning sessions will take place both in-person at the Maison de la Paix and online. Please read more in our application criteria here.
- The Geneva Peace Week 2020 theme
- Key dates for the GPW20 cycle
- Required session formats and types
- New innovations in the logistical framework of GPW
Session Applications are due by 15 July 12:00 (Central European Summer Time) via the application page. Notification will be sent to successful applicants by the end of August 2020. The organizers plans GPW20 as a hybrid forum and will inform all prospective session organizers in case the public health situation requires shifting GPW20 to an online format only.
The GPW20 Organizing Team is expecting a large number of applications and encourages organizations to refrain from submitting more than two proposed sessions.
