Recovering better for an equitable & sustainable world

Geneva PeaceTalks 2021

The 2021 Geneva PeaceTalks invites you to create some time and space for peace. How can a wider reflection on peace, healing and recovery help us as we move forward as a collective?

In 2021, as we heal from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are inspired to think creatively and collectively about how to help everyone recover better, how to build resilience, and how to transform our world into one that is more equal, more just, equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and healthier.

Through short talks, twelve speakers from different walks of life and different parts of the globe shared their tangible learnings and ideas drawn from their experiences in the fields of climate change, dance, education, health, music and peacebuilding.
