Senior Citizens: Intergenerational Peacebuilding

French | Seniors and young people | Free

Online : Zoom

An online event featuring a panel discussing effective approaches to promoting the values needed for peace building in the context of seniors. As UNESCO’s Constitution states: “Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defence of peace must be constructed”.

It will be our pleasure to welcome:

  • Professor Patrice Brodeur from Canada’s Université de Montréal;
  • Mr. Mohamed Zarouk (78-year-old senior) working in the field of interculturalism (Tunisian Diaspora in Canada);
  • Mrs. Mama Koité Doumbia, activist for gender equality and other issues, omnipresent in the construction of peace in Mali and the Sahel.
  • Minister Euphrasie YAO of Côte d’Ivoire, who oversees the UNESCO Chair for Peace. She launched the CRÉA-PAIX Campaign with the support of UNESCO, as well as many embassies in Africa, Europe and America, under the theme, “Because Peace is Non-Negotiable: Women and Young People Take a Stand.”
