Applicants have the opportunity to organise events or to produce digital content on the three themes mentioned hereafter. To guide conversation, six areas of interest have been identified by the GPW consortium for each of the three thematic tracks as follows:

Promoting peaceful and inclusive societies

  1. Inequalities and social justice

  2. Local to global governance

  3. Gender equality and minorities rights

  4. Youth inclusion

The selection committee might consider applications on topics that do not fit into these three thematic tracks. Additional topics must be relevant to peacebuilding efforts and the overarching theme of the 10-year anniversary “Building Trust, Building Peace: An Agenda for the Future”, including on the more specific themes relating to the New Agenda for Peace.

To apply, interested organisations should fill out the online application form available on our website. The deadline for applications is Sunday 4 June midnight (GMT +02:00).

Geneva Peace Week is committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion. We encourage international organisations, NGOs, private companies, permanent missions, academic institutions, research centres and others to apply.
