In May we announced the first Paris Peace Forum which started this weekend and is taking place in La Grande Halle de La Villette in Paris, France until today. Many organizations are attending the event and we took this opportunity to meet with some of them.
Conferences and discussions already took place about climate change and environment, gender equality, education… Here is a selection of tweets by organizations and important topics during this first Paris Peace Forum:

This first edition was very interesting, and we will know if it is a success in the coming months. We hope to be there again for the second edition of the Paris Peace Forum in 2019 to support initiatives and to move forward solutions to international challenges for a better world!
