The grand moment during which multiple heads of state take the stage on issues of global governance, including French president Emmanuel Macron.
Making it work Session
A noteworthy session that will shed light on the work of the Scale Up Committee set up by the Forum in 2018. The session will also discuss the process of providing project support throughout the year since the first edition in order to maximize impact.
From a carefully selected group of 120 initiatives presented at the Forum, 10 projects will be chosen to receive support from the Scale Up Committee throughout the year. Those chosen will be announced at this conclusive moment of the annual Forum.
On the evening of 11 November, there will be a preview reception reserved for members of the Paris Peace Forum community.
The entire Forum Program is carefully constructed to reflect a philosophy of open dialogue between all actors of global governance, focusing on the solutions rather than merely the challenges at hand.
Diverse debate content encourages innovation and communication, in which all voices are heard. Most debates are followed by a Q&A session for direct interaction with the speakers, as well as various opportunities to continue the discussion via the Paris Peace Forum mobile application and across social media platforms.
Sessions are constructed in a variety of innovative formats to consistently encourage close conversations, gather advice from experts and craft sustainable peace. The philosophy of the Forum’s debate program is to ensure a rich diversity of content and multi-stakeholder speakers list representing a comprehensive balance of sectors, themes, and geographical areas.
Please note, the complete program is currently being finalized, and certain session dates and times are susceptible to change. Check back regularly for more 2019 Program details!
