“Let’s talk peace!”
The Geneva Peace Talks 2014 will highlight how communication tools, techniques, and channels can contribute to resolving conflict. Speakers will reflect on how they have personally overcome the challenges of communication in their involvements in peacebuilding, communications, peace negotiations, as well as discussions with perpetrators of violence and underrepresented groups to build lasting peace.
Coming from violent and divided environments as well as backgrounds in science, art, business, and more, speakers will share their personal stories of peace and how communication has made a difference in their peacebuilding efforts. More information on speakers will follow shortly.
The event is made possible with the generous support of the Fondation pour Genève, the Swiss Confederation, the Republic and State of Geneva, and the City of Geneva.
