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, IPB Youth Network and Ver.di are organising 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 the 2019 Peace Congress.

Working Meeting

The IPBYN is offering a floor for open discussions, in the framework of topics close to the network (e.g. related to youth, peace and security) and to the organisation of the 2019 World Youth Congress on Peacebuilding.

Through a participatory process, the objective is to come up with meaningful and innovative ideas for each participant to use in their actions and work, and to  share with their networks.
