The ninth edition of Geneva Peace Week (GPW) is proud to launch its call for applications on the overarching theme ‘Peace is Possible’. Geneva Peace Week is a leading annual forum in the international peacebuilding calendar in which organizations in Geneva and their international partners come together to share knowledge and practice on a diverse range of topics relating to the promotion of peace across contexts and disciplines. 

Geneva Peace Week 2022 will be held from 31 October - 4 November, both in-person and online. As every year, Geneva Peace Week 2022 will aim to enhance the quality of the programme and experience for peacebuilding practitioners, and to also maintain an inclusive space for dialogue on cross-cutting issues on peace. In 2022, there will be an opportunity to participate as an organizer of a Workshop or a Digital Series production. The Selection Committee will accept the highest quality of applications for approximately 25 workshops (up to 15 in-person), and 25 contributions to the adapted Digital Series.
