"Nesting Peace: Creating Infrastructures to Sustain Diversity" is the sixth Summit of the Global Alliance for Ministries and Infrastructures for Peace (GAMIP). This conference will take place from 16th to the 20th of September 2013 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The goal of the Summit, which will bring together 150 participants from across the globe representing various groups from civil society, governments, as well as United Nations institutions and agencies, will be to enhance awareness and understanding of peace infrastructures and their essential role in sustainable strategies of peace promotion. This sixth Summit will be designed to connect participants in innovative ways in order to catalyze engagement.
"Nesting Peace" is being organized in partnership with two other non-governmental organizations, namely Pacicultura,and the United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY Peacebuilders), an international NGO with UN ECOSOC status that brings the youth dimension into both the organizing team and the conference itself. This conference applies the principles of gift economy and crowdsourcing: the Summit will be completely funded through donations and sponsorships in order to be truly inclusive and not impose financial constraints on individuals' participation.
The places for the Summit are limited and registrations close on June 16, 2013.
