Paris Peace Forum 2019
The 2019 Paris Peace Forum will take place from 11-13 November.
For its second edition, the Call for Projects of the Paris Peace Forum received more than 700 project submissions from 115 countries, led by a wide panel of actors of global governance, such as states, international organisations, NGOs, companies, foundations, philanthropic organisations, development agencies, religious groups, trade unions, think tanks and universities.
The Selection Committee evaluated all submissions and made its choice based on a geographically balanced representation. These selected project leaders will be able to showcase their innovative work, with the Forum serving as an opportunity for them to develop, energise, and raise visibility to their project by reaching thousands of actors from across sectors and specialties. Their participation will also bring invaluable practical insight to the Forum and facilitate the exchange of best practices on the most pressing challenges the world faces.
About the Forum
The Forum maintains a specific focus on governance solutions in six major themes:
- Peace & Security
- New technologies
- Inclusive economy
- Culture & Education
It is held every year on 11-13 November in Paris with the aim to place global governance at the top of the international agenda. Stakeholders discuss global governance issues and cooperate on solutions through three spaces:
- Space for Solutions: Presenting solutions for incremental change. All organizations can showcase and advance their global governance project to other stakeholders to jointly advance them.
- Space for Debates: Discussing solutions rather than problems. Stakeholders discuss projects, initiatives, and ideas to address the challenges of our world.
- Space for Innovations: Developing digital prototypes. Experts help create technological solutions for the world of tomorrow.
