Cultural event “Reinventing peace”
15 November 2016
Paris – UNESCO House, Room II
9.30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the award of the UNESCO Prize for Peace Education to Chiara Lubich in 1996, the NGO New Humanity organizes this cultural event as a contribution to a “civilization of alliance and dialogue”.
On the basis of Chiara Lubich’s daring proposal inviting people to "love the motherland of the other as your own", peace can be understood as the mutual recognition of identities and differences and at the same time as a universal community based on universal shared values.
After sharing concrete experience, a number of courses of action will be proposed in order to reinvent peace in areas of the world economy, international law, education for peace, ecology, and art.
