World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace

Wednesday, 19 April, 2017 to Friday, 21 April, 2017

The celebration of the First World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace which will take place in Madrid from 19 to 21 of April 2017, back to back with the UCLG Executive Bureau (18-19).

Cities are the human settlements of the present and the future; places that are not exempt from conflicts and expressions of violence, but they are also a place of opportunities. In this Global Forum, the city of Madrid, which is organizing the Forum, wants to focus on what local leaders can do to make cities a place of peace and coexistence. Its desire is that Mayors from all over the world take this opportunity to meet with civil society benchmarks, international organisations and peace leaders by opening a process of debate and reflection that is committed to education as a tool of coexistence in order to ensure the future welfare of cities.

Date: 19th, 20th & 21st April, 2017   

Place: La N@ve, Calle Cifuentes, 5, 28021, Madrid
