Peace Without Borders
GENEVA PEACE TALKS 2018
21 September 2018
4:00 – 6:30 PM CET
Palais des Nations, Geneva
We grow up aware of borders – whether they be in the mind, geographic, political or phyical. Yet sometimes these borders create real damage and harm. How do people deconstruct these borders to welcome peace instead?
Every year, the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The United Nations General Assembly has declared this a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people.
The 6th edition of the Geneva Peace Talks is organized under the theme “Peace without Borders”. The speakers will share their personal experiences, stories and ideas to highlight their efforts to promote peace that goes beyond borders- be they in the mind, geographic, political or physical boundaries.
The Geneva Peace Talks are a public event co-organized by the United Nations Office at Geneva, Interpeace and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform to celebrate the International Day of Peace.
