The knowledge hub for better peacebuilding

Geneva Peace Calendar 2017


The Geneva Peace Calendar is an initiative of the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform to foster cooperation and synergies between Geneva-based institutions working in the fields of conflict prevention and peacebuilding and related efforts to strengthen peaceful and inclusive societies. The initiative was piloted in 2016 with a survey across all international organizations, missions and non-governmental organizations, as well as with a public event during Geneva Peace Week (7 November). The Geneva Peace Calendar consists of a survey on three questions. 

  1. What are the priorities of your organization in 2017 to support, guide, or study (a) Peace processes or conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts? (b) The implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially Goal 16 and peace-related goals and indicators?
  2. In which areas of your work in 2017 are you looking for partnerships with other actors?
  3. What are the major events on conflict prevention, peacebuilding and related efforts to strengthen peaceful and inclusive societies your organization is planning in Geneva in 2017?

Each participant organization is responsible for its own content. The submissions reflected in this document do not necessarily represent the views of the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform.
