Geneva Peace Calendar 2017
This event has the objective to foster cooperation and synergy building through information sharing about work priorities, partnerships, and events. It brings together the responses from a survey entitled “Geneva Peace Calendar 2017” and invites organizations and missions to share their reflections about key priorities, partnerships, and events in 2017.
The Geneva Peace Calendar is piloted in 2016 with a survey across all international organizations, missions and non-governmental organizations. The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform has invited organization and missions to participate in a survey to submit responses to 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?
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 Geneva Peace Calendar has the objective to become a reference for cooperation and synergy building through information sharing about priorities, partnerships, and events.
