The second Global Forum on the Power of Peace, 28-30 October 2009 was a timely occasion to build on past discussions, collaborations and activities. Within the context of difficult economic times and rapidly changing social realities, the place and efficacy of a Power of Peace Network can be reassessed.
To understand more about the Power of Peace Network initiative, please visit the PPN Project page.
PPN was discussed in the context of forum themes touching on the role of media and ICTs relating to mutual understanding, conflict management, new opportunities for collaboration, faith and religion, and the leadership of youth and universities.
Please consult the Bangkok Forum website created by UNESCO for background documents, concept papers, the Forum mission, goals and objectives, the forum evolving program and speaker roster, registration information and more.
