The International Conference on the culture of peace and non-violence, organized in collaboration with the International Coalition for the Decade, will take place within the framework of the 3rd International Salon for Peace Initiatives.
It will be held in the Centre des Congrès de La Villette, which contains a 300-400 seat amphitheater and many workshop rooms.
The International Conference will favour the encounter and the collective thinking of actors from allover the world engaged in the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence and will help create synergies and networks at the international level. It will be the occasion for giving more visibility to the culture of peace and non-violence.
The round tables and the workshops of the International Conference will allow for the encounter and the debate among several scientific disciplines (sociology, psychology and pedagogy) and several citizen practices (associative, political) from the whole world. They will take into account the death anniversary of two major figures of non-violence: M.K.Gandhi (1948) and Martin Luther King (1968).
