Stockholm Peace Talks – Better Together

Save the date!

Building on the success of the 2015 Stockholm Peace Talks held at the Swedish Parliament, a second edition is now being planned.

Organized under the theme “Better Together”, the aim of the Stockholm Peace Talks is to inspire people and spark a discussion on how each and every one of us can play a role in fostering greater cohesion and inclusion in Sweden and abroad.  In our increasingly interdependent world, respect for diversity, inclusion and cooperation among sectors are not just desirable but vital elements that lay the foundations for peaceful societies. Speakers of the 2017 Stockholm Peace Talks will share tangible experiences, personal stories and ideas to highlight the role that each and everyone one of us can play in contributing to inclusion and peace.

The event will take place on March 21st in Stockhom’s City Hall, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

The event is organized by Interpeace, in partnership with Ben & Jerry’s, the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and the Swedish Postcode Foundation, with digital partners Darwin Digital.

Previous Peace Talks have been held at the United Nations Offices in Geneva and Kenya as well as at the Swedish Parliament, the Global Centre for Pluralism in Ottawa and at London City Hall. The Peace Talks were co-founded by the United Nations Office at Geneva, Interpeace and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform with the support of the Swiss Government.
