Beyond Prevention: Five Alternative Ways to Peace
In times of extremes, there are many ways of choosing to promote peace instead of violence. The upcoming Human Library event held during the Geneva Peace Week explores different approaches to prevention through the personal stories of five "human books". These books are professionals working in different contexts with different tools to promote interfaith dialogue, grassroots solutions and education as means to contribute to living in a more peaceful society. The event is part of the #EnrichingEncounters series by CAUX-Initiatives of Change Foundation. See you in Geneva!
