Paris Peace Forum 2020 - Call For Projects

Paris Peace Forum 2020 - Call For Projects

Since 2018, the Paris Peace Forum has been the place where heads of state and international organizations meet civil society and the private sector to construct new forms of collective action. On 11-13 November 2020, its third edition will be chiefly devoted to the multi-actor response to Coronavirus, with the conviction that we can collectively overcome the enormous challenges before us – and use the crisis as an opportunity to rebuild a more sustainable world.

“The current crisis shows how dependent national leaders– even those rejecting multilateralism – are on collective action for essential tasks like finding and distributing a vaccine, supporting fragile countries and restoring a Coronavirus-free world. Never has the multi-actor approach that underpinned the creation of the Paris Peace Forum been so necessary.” Justin Vaïsse, Director General of the Paris Peace Forum

The third edition of the Forum will be centered on the collective response to Coronavirus, both in terms of improving our immediate response and resilience, and of rebuilding a more sustainable world. 1. Improving the global governance of health, with a view to increasing coordination among actors, launching initiatives, enhancing alert systems and preparedness, and boosting local health systems in developing countries. 2. Fixing and greening capitalism: Beyond necessary emergency measures – including for developing countries – to kick-start and sustain activity, we need to build economies that are fairer and more inclusive, and productive systems that are environmentally sustainable. 3. Getting data and social media to help, not hurt: Cyber solutions contribute to tackling the pandemic, but they can jeopardize privacy and freedom. Hence the necessity to fight fake news, decide on proper regulation of the use of personal data, and increase cybersecurity for all. Other global governance issues such as regional security architectures and peace, gender equality, education (with the threat posed to fragile education systems), biodiversity – especially regarding oceans and access to clean water – as well as the governance of outer space will remain on the agenda.

 

 

The Paris Peace Forum is centered on those who seek to develop concrete and innovative solutions for today’s transnational challenges. The Paris Peace Forum calls on all organizations around the world that wish to develop their solutions to global challenges to apply to participate the third edition from 11 to 13 November 2020.
