Plenary: Intergenerational Dialogue for Peace and Solidarity and the UCLG Peace Prize Award Ceremony
Cities are where creativity happens, and where dreams are fullfilled, but they can also prove to be places of exclusion, frustration and conflict. In order to make our cities spaces of peace, we need to develop more than the absence of war. Dialogue should be the cardinal rule of today, for the sake of tomorrow. The UCLG Peace Prize that will be presented aims to shed light on the heroic local governments that are brave enough to carry out peacebuilding initiatives, often without any outside help.
