Event on the International Day of Peace 2018 in Berlin



This year’s International Day of Peace may be conducted in one of the most challenging times of the 21st century. We see the powers striving for the rise of old conflicts and rivalries, nationalisms as well as massive armament paired with growing injustices in the world. At the same time we see the further developing of peacebuilding, civil conflict resolution and a strengthening of the United Nations and other peaceful and democratic structures.

The IPB Youth Network and IPB are organising together with NatWiss a public event on the challenges to peace, as well as a working meeting with several NGOs and stakeholders active in peace in the forthcoming of the organisation of a 2019 Peace Congress.
