History of the World Peace Forum
The World Peace Forum has become a platform for best practice exchange and a market place for peacemakers. Once a year peacemakers are invited to present their projects and ideas, their efforts and ways to build a more peaceful world. A small, yet international group of scholars, researchers, artists, politicians and citizens from around the world organised an initial conference in Schengen, Luxembourg in 2006. From this small event the World Peace Forum has developed into a global platform for peace activists and initiatives.
Each year is given a particular theme for discussion, these have included Conflict Resolution, Connecting Peacemakers and Women, Stability & Peace. In2015 the World Peace Forum took it’s first real steps into the world and organized the 1st Youth World Peace Forum in Cairo, Egypt followed by the World Peace Forum in the city of Baia Mare, Romania working on the topic of “Finding Common Global Values“. Our 2016 World Peace Forum will be hosted in Florianopolis, Brazil under the motto “We believe“ extending our network in South America.
