This event has been organised by RISING Global Peace Forum in partnership with the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building and Corrymeela as a part of their regional programme.

Inspired and supported by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the RISING Global Peace Forum was founded in 2015 by a partnership between Coventry University, Coventry Cathedral and Coventry City Council. As the UK’s City of Peace and Reconciliation, Coventry is uniquely placed to demonstrate both the catastrophic consequences of conflict and the transformative power of peace. It brings together political, faith and community leaders; peace-builders; diplomats; academics; the media; and members of the public in the common cause of provoking peace. The next annual gathering will take place from 15 to 16 November 2016 in Coventry. For more information please visit
