Global Peace Conference - The Hague 2018
The Global Peace Conference is a preeminent, world-level platform to share best practices and develop collaborative strategies in areas of education, health care, environmental sustainability, community-driven development, and conflict resolution.
The Global Peace conference advances innovative responses to the challenges of conflict and peace by drawing upon the expertise of government, Inter faith based civil societies partners, community development partners and by involving stakeholders from affected regions.
Grounded in a comprehensive, value based approach that recognizes the fundamental rights as given by United Nations International Human Rights as well as responsibilities of every global citizen, the Global Peace Conference presents a vision for peace and social progress that reflects the highest human aspirations.
We have an opportunity to understand:
1. UNDERSTANDING AND PREVENTING IDENTITY-BASED CONFLICT
Extremist ideologies are a growing threat to peace in the world. The Global Peace conference is committed to resolving identity-based conflict through emphasis on principles and shared values that embrace the entire human family. Training civilians for emergencies and disasters is a critical need of the time.
2. BUILDING PEACE THROUGH TRADE AND INVESTMENT
Peace is a precondition of prosperity. Economic activity and investment thrives in an environment of political and social stability. The business community has a vital role to play in promoting human welfare and fostering peace. Income generation and small industries are crucial to bring peace in the developing countries which not only brings prosperity but also gives security to the global citizens.

The Global Peace conference hosts a summit of teachers from around the world to explore innovative education models that stress community and school collaboration to promote quality education.
