Paris Peace Forum – Participate in the call for projects [fr]
Den første utgaven av Paris Peace Forum finner sted 11. til 13. november. Som svar på de økende spenningene i verden i dag, har forumet som ambisjon å bli et årlig møtested for prosjekter, ideer og initiativ som effektivt bidrar til et bedre internasjonalt samarbeid knyttet til de store globale utfordringene, en mer rettferdig globalisering og et mer effektivt multilateralt system.
The Paris Peace Forum is part of the drive by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, to reaffirm the importance of multilateralism and collective action in responding to current global challenges.
The aim is to strive towards peace through better global governance and promote means of reducing international tensions including cooperation between States to confront cross-boundary challenges, collective management of global common goods and better regulation of the internet and communication.
Inspired by the COP21 model, the Paris Peace Forum will be a place for sharing experiences and innovative solutions bringing together all governance stakeholders including Heads of State and Government, local and national elected representatives, regional and international organizations and civil society in the wider sense (businesses, associations, NGOs, foundations, think tanks, media outlets, religious representatives, unions, etc.). The aim is to drive forward governance projects by showcasing them, using them as a basis for debates in various formats and promoting networking between project developers and relevant decision makers.
The Paris Peace Forum will be centred on five themes: peace and security, the environment, development, digital and new technologies and the inclusive economy.
If you wish to put forward a governance project, the Paris Peace Forum will be a unique opportunity to present and drive forward your initiative.
For a chance to be one of the 150 projects chosen by the selection committee submit your project online: https://parispeaceforum.org/project-leaders/
Submissions close on 30 August.
