31 OCTOBER - 4 NOVEMBER 2022
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 took place both in-person and also online from 31 October to 4 November 2022.
GPW seeks to create an increased number of spaces for physical, in-person meetings for professionals who are able to attend in Geneva. As the Geneva Peace Week brings together citizens and experts, thinkers and doers to share experiences, build knowledge and expertise, and empower everyone to work collectively towards peace, the opening and closing ceremonies of GPW are open to the general public and welcome everyone, on-site in Geneva.
The overarching theme of GPW22 is ‘Peace is Possible'. Geneva Peace Week 2022 continues to build upon the thematic discussions that emerged in 2021, while creating spaces for contextualizing and discussing recent local and geopolitical developments, and how they impact the work of those working towards a more peaceful and just society globally. The thematic tracks for GPW22 have been developed and adjusted to build upon discussions from 2021, and to take them a step further.
The Online & In-person Workshops and Digital Series for Geneva Peace Week 2022 have been organized into four thematic tracks:

The Digital Series feature contributions in which organizers develop their peacebuilding expertise, research, and stories into short, educational and digital formats (videos, podcasts, and other media). The Digital Series format has been adapted for the GPW22 edition to bring focus on information-sharing that is concise, but in-depth, with the goal of educating online audiences on peacebuilding topics related to GPW22. The Digital Series contributions are broadcasted on the GPW website and major streaming platforms (including YouTube and Spotify etc.) The Digital Series offers an opportunity for contributions to the frontline work of peace to continue beyond Geneva Peace Week, across geographical, cultural and temporal borders.
Please find below the Digital Series content list for GPW22.
