A Human Library at the Geneva Peace Week
Get inspired by our “human books” who will tell their story of why and how they build trust in and around Europe! Each of them will present a different approach, from cooking to environmental cooperation and documentary film-making, across generations and countries.
But they have one thing in common: Their important trustbuilding work helps to prevent tensions and transform conflicts within and between communities and hence contributes to building peace. Travel with us to learn from our inspiring speakers, and take the opportunity to also share your experience with regards to addressing the rising tension and polarization in and around Europe.
A light lunch and refreshments will be provided for networking after the event.
Where: Maison de la Paix - Petal 4 - GCSP Conference Room 1 (4th Floor)
When: Tuesday 5 November, 11:15-12:30
