The Paris Peace Forum continues to demonstrate that in a deteriorated international environment it is still possible to advance governance solutions, scale-up projects and launch new initiatives in peace & security, development, environment, new technologies, inclusive economy, or culture & education.

For its second edition, the Call for Projects of the Paris Peace Forum has received more than 700 project submissions from 115 countries and led by a wide panel of actors of global governance, such as states, international organizations, NGOs, companies, foundations, philanthropic organizations, development agencies, religious groups, trade unions, think tanks and universities.
The Selection Committee evaluated all submissions and made its choice based on a geographical and gender balanced representation.

Discover the projects that will be showcased at the next edition of the Forum on 11-13 November 2019 at la Grande Halle de La Villlette, in Paris.
