Positive Peace in Africa – The Environment We Need
Download – Concept Note
The UNESCO Harare and Nairobi Offices are organizing a African Regional Dialogue on “Positive Peace in Africa – The Environment We Need”, in contribution to the 2021 Nanjing Peace Forum that is jointly hosted by the UNESCO Beijing Office, the Chinese National Commission for UNESCO, the Information Office of Jiangsu Provincial Government, and the Nanjing Municipal Government. This annual event was first launched last year as part of a three-year MoU between UNESCO and the Nanjing Municipal Government to reiterate the significance of peace, and to formalize a partnership to promote peace and understanding among people. The Forum is designed to seek ideas on how to reshape the world towards one marked by intercultural understanding, tolerance, solidarity, social justice, and inclusion. It is a periodic coming together, underpinning a permanent process of strengthening dialogue and capacities for all relevant stakeholders towards building and sustaining peace.
