What Is The Peace Talks All About?
The Peace Talks is an initiative showcasing inspirational stories from people who are making a positive contribution to peace! For one evening only, people from all walks of life will come together to share their personal stories, ideas and practical solutions to build peace, all under the banner that no matter where you are in the world, peace is possible.
And this edition of the Peace Talks are especially, ahem, special. This Thursday, 3rd November, marks the first ever London peace Talks! Changemakers will unite in our capital city, at the awesome location of City Hall, to put their heads together for a more peaceful world, with the theme of Building Bridges.
To help bring this sweet event to London, we've linked up with our friends at Interpeace, a strategic partner of the UN, along with the organisers of Peace Talks.
Co-founded by the UN Office at Geneva, Interpeace, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, the Peace Talks is now in its fourth year, and with the previous having gone down a storm in Geneva, Stockholm, Ottawa and Nairobi, our city has a lot to live up to!
Who's Doing the Talking?
Thursday night will be hosted by Lliana Bird, Radio X presenter and co-founder of Help for Refugees. She'll be joined by six inspirational speakers - check them out below!
