A full programme of events were organised to mark the IPB’s Nobel Peace Prize centenary, including outdoor performances and concerts, debates, children’s workshops, a secondary school photo competition, and an ‘International Village’ featuring 50+ local, national and international NGO and GO representatives. Special guests organisations included Aina World, Cartooning for Peace and the Yves Rocher Foundation.
With a long standing history for promoting peace and reconciliation, Geneva is proud to have presented Making Peace for the first time and urges other cities to use this excellent tool to involve the public in peace making activities.
