Youth Shaping Peace Together 0 Reply

The UN General Assembly each 21 September as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace. The International Day of Peace 2020 is dedicated to “Shaping Peace Together” and aims to celebrate compassion, kindness and hope in world frightened by COVID-19 pandemic. A special moment that the United Nations celebrates in the framework of its 75th anniversary and a programme of global conversations aimed at building the peaceful and prosperous future that we all want.

Dialogue Café Network will commemorate the International Day of Peace by organising a global debate on the role of youth in peacebuilding to foster dialogue and collect ideas.

Young people will be invited to share thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet and build peace[1] and debate on the following questions raised by UN and other proposed by participants during the exchange:

  • What does peace mean to you?
  • When you envision a peaceful world, what do you see?
  • What actions are needed to make your vision a reality?
  • What role can you play in that regard?
  • How can prevent conflicts in the first place? 
  • How can we tackle conflicts?
  • It´s peace is declared, how can it be sustained?

The debate will be moderated by a member of Dialogue Café Network through questions and the exchange of experiences. External participants will have the possibility of sharing their questions through chat to experts and guest involved but registration is mandatory. Otherwise interested participants can attend the event via livestreaming. The debate will take place via Dialogue Café videoconference system provided by CISCO Webex.
