Geneva Peace Talks 2015
It's time for peace!
This year’s theme is “It’s Time For Peace!”. In light of daily news headlines about war and violent conflict, the Geneva Peace Talks 2015 will highlight the urgency to support peace efforts around the world. The Geneva Peace Talks will look back on past peace efforts, learn more about ongoing initiatives and draw conclusions for the future of peacebuilding. Speakers will share innovative ways to strengthen peace and prevent violent conflict – now and in the future.
Speakers are coming from violent and divided environments and have diverse backgrounds such as science, art, business, and more. They will share their personal stories of peace and how they are making a difference in peacebuilding efforts.
The Geneva Peace Talks are a public event organized on the occasion of the International Day of Peace in a partnership between the United Nations Office at Geneva, Interpeace and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform.
