The world stands at a historically unique crossroads – either the abyss of nuclear, ecological, and social disaster or a common, just, demilitarized, and environmentally sustainable future. The social and environmental catastrophes reinforced by greed, racism, and sexism are undeniable. But we are not helpless – we can and are mobilising to restore health to our planet.
We are launching a campaign to support the basic costs of these young activists to travel to the World Peace Congress 2021 and to improve our technological capacities to include those who cannot afford to make the journey. While we cannot support travel costs for the entire IPB family, this is our way of making sure we can include the inspiring voices of youth peace activists and to reach a wider global audience.
Donations will go first to the travel and lodging costs for global south youth representatives, estimated to be CHF10,000. Additional funds raised beyond this will contribute to enhancing our technical capacities – technological equipment and personnel to operate and optimize a hybrid event platform enabling Global South participation via plenary speeches, workshops, cultural events, and interactive platform features. Holding a hybrid event will be key to bringing together a truly inclusive Congress.
