Organised under the theme “Let’s build peace through diversity”, the Ottawa Peace Talks aims to inspire reflection and discussion about how respect for diversity can promote more peaceful societies through inclusion, both in Canada and globally. Being held at the Global Centre for Pluralism, this event marks the first time the Peace Talks are held in Canada. Speakers coming from diverse backgrounds will share their personal experiences, stories and ideas to highlight the importance of building peace through broad and diverse participation. The Ottawa Peace Talks will also look at the role of individual Canadians, and Canada as a whole, to support greater inclusion for peace at home and at the global level.

What are the Peace Talks?

The purpose of the Peace Talks is to expand the space for discussion about building peace and resolving conflict. The Peace Talks aim to change perceptions about peace and to make the issue of peace more understandable and accessible to a wider public. The Peace Talks event series began in 2013, with the first ever Geneva Peace Talks being co-organized by the United Nations Office at Geneva, the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform and Interpeace.
