The 3rd World Peace Forum

The 3rd World Peace Forum, organised by the Région Normandie, began on 1st October at the Abbaye-aux-Dames in Caen. The Normandy Chair of Excellence for Peace, launched and supported by the Région Normandie and the CNRS and hosted by the MRSH (CNRS – University of Caen Normandy), was present.

The Normandy Chair for Peace was presented to the attendees. Antonio Oposa, Leader of the Chair, spoke to young people participating in the Walk the Global Walk programme which focuses on SDG 13.

Émilie Gaillard, General Coordinator of the Chair, led the debate “Amazonia: a global issue”, alongside Gert-Peter Bruch (Planet Amazon). The participants were able to hear the first hand account of Ninawa (live from the Amazon) as well as contributions from Céline Cousteau (environmental activist and documentary filmmaker) and François Michel Le Tourneu (geographer, CNRS).
