World in flames: civil society lost in the impotence of international law

May 25 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

A civil society workshop

The main goal of this G2H2 civil society workshop is simple, albeit challenging: we must allow ourselves the time and space to exchange our reflections listening to each other in our different and possibly diverging views. We need to exchange perspectives and positions and share our personal experiences beyond mere professional patterns, to jointly comprehend the implications of the mounting violence, and the arms vocation that comes with it, around us. What can we do?

In the spirit of the G2H2 approach, the workshop aims to broker an honest dialogue  and – if the aspiration emerges – to explore avenues for civil society positioning and actions in a world of warfare beyond silence, resignation and business as usual.  Individually, well beyond our professional mandates, we have been crossed by feelings of hopelessness and contradictions.

It’s time to talk and understand where we are, where we are going, while many of us are now engaged in the UN Summit for the Future. Can there be a future if we do not solve the present through justice and peace?
