The eighth edition of Geneva Peace Week is proud to launch its call for applications.
Geneva Peace Week (GPW) is where bridges are built and silos are busted, and where the various levels of actors working on peace from all sectors can interact. It is a space of meaningful exchange and co-created learning linking practitioners, policymakers, researchers, students, and individuals from all sectors.
Geneva Peace Week 2021 will be held from 1-5 November. This year it will take place online (with a possibility of a hybrid session for the opening and closing sessions), with several new features that have been introduced to innovate upon the participant experience, interaction, and thematic focus of GPW21. Every year since its inception, Geneva Peace Week has grown (and changed). After many years of exponential growth in quantity we believe that that growth must now continue in quality, innovation, learning, and interaction. Therefore, as our many reviews and participant feedback have suggested, we will be organizing a more focused event with about half as many events as last year. Watch this year's kickoff video to learn more.
Geneva Peace Week is a platform built by many and it is in many ways an exercise in, and part of, the collaborative process of building peace around the world. We hope you will join us this year! Learn more and apply here.
