The Peace Talks head to Ottawa
February 22, 2016
The Peace Talks will be held in Ottawa on 19 April, 2016.
Organized under the theme “Let’s build peace through diversity”, the Ottawa Peace Talks aims to inspire reflection and discussion about how respect for diversity can promote more peaceful societies through inclusion, both in Canada and globally.
This event marks the first time the Peace Talks are held in Canada. Speakers coming from diverse backgrounds will share their personal experiences, stories and ideas to highlight the importance of building peace through broad and diverse participation. The Ottawa Peace Talks will also look at the role of individual Canadians, and Canada as a whole, to support greater inclusion for peace at home and at the global level.
The Peace Talks are an event series where speakers from different sectors share their personal stories, ideas and practical solutions to build peace. They began in 2013, with the first ever Geneva Peace Talks being co-organized by the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and Interpeace.
The Ottawa Peace Talks is co-organized by the Global Centre for Pluralism, currently housed in the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat, and Interpeace, with the support of One World Dialogue and the Ottawa hub of the Global Shapers Community.
