Geneva Peace Week 2020: 2-6 November
Geneva Peace Week is a leading annual forum in the international peacebuilding calendar, and the flagship event of the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform. 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.
Sessions are organized by institutions and individuals in Geneva and around the world. The GPW consortium is currently processing applications and will contact selected applicants by the end of August. Sessions will be held both under the official theme, below, and the open programme.
"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?
Geneva Peace Week will be held from 2-6 November in the Maison de la Paix, Geneva, and online. A detailed list of sessions and events will be made public this fall. The forum is free and open to the public, though registration for sessions may be required. The organizers plan GPW20 as a hybrid forum and will make a formal announcement in case the public health situation requires shifting GPW20 to an online format only.
