The Paris Peace Forum calls on all organizations to bring concrete and innovative solutions that tackle global challenges and to present them at the third edition of its annual event.
The Paris Peace Forum is centered on those who seek to develop concrete and innovative solutions for today’s transborder challenges.
Each year, a Call for Projects is launched to showcase and support normative projects (instruments of law, standards and good practices) as well as capacity-building projets (new institutions, mechanisms and innovations) in 6 major themes:
All public and private organizations around the world are invited to bring their projects and initiatives to showcase them at the third edition of the Paris Peace Forum from 11 to 13 November 2020 at La Grande Halle de La Villette à Paris. This Call for Projects is open to all actors of global governance, such as international organizations, non-governmental organizations, states, companies, foundations, development agencies, religious groups, associations, think tanks and universities.
At the annual event, selected project leaders will have the opportunity to increase the visibility of their solutions, benefiting from the number of visitors as well as the international media coverage of the event. They will also be able to test their projects in front of diverse audience, through a pitch presentation, as part of debate or by scheduling meetings with other participant at their stands. They will get a chance to connect with potentiel partners, such as high-level representatives of states and international organizations officials, directors of NGOs or companies, philanthropists, experts and journalists.
Further information regarding eligibility and the application process can be found on the Call for Projects page. The 2020 Call for Projects is open 12 March through 12 May 2020 at 6pm (Paris time).
