RISING Global Peace Forum will be 13th to 15th November 2019. The theme for both the Symposia and the main Forum is ‘The Ecology of Peace’ and we’ll be exploring and celebrating the many different routes by which peace can be made and sustained: top-down, bottom-up, with/without a formal peace deal, peace between nations, individuals and with our environment and peace through cultural activities and sport. The latest programme is as follows:
This will build on last year’s ‘Anatomy of Peace’ theme by looking at what makes for peaceful communities, not just from a top-down perspective, but by considering the interdependence and interconnectedness of community and civic actions and how these actions work together to make us – as groups, communities and countries – more secure. Given our status as the UK’s only City of Peace and Reconciliation, Coventry is an ideal place for such a gathering.
For the main Forum we’re already talking to many high-profile leaders and practitioners who we’re inviting to come to Coventry, so please save the dates now and let your colleagues and contacts know that, as in 2018, the event will be free to attend! To register your interest in attending in November, please email RISING@coventry.ac.uk
In addition there will be a number of RISING Symposia throughout the year.
