Following an incredibly successful launch of the COP16, we are running our second session of Community of Practice 16+.
We are happy to announce that the second COP16 meeting is taking place on Friday April 17th between 15:00-16:30. The theme of the session is how can we deliver value as peace and justice workers during this pandemic?
Please register here.
All of our lives have shifted in response to the coronavirus. This is reflected in this session. First, the meeting will take place on Zoom. After your registration, you will be shared a link sometime next week that directs you to the platform Zoom. Along with it, you will receive some helpful guidance on how to engage and use the tool to interact with fellow members.
As per your feedback, more time is allocated to going in-depth into these discussions. You choose the topic you wish to dedicate your time to. There are four sub-groups that are facilitated by fellow members who volunteered at the end of Session 1:
– Perceptions of Justice: How can justice in The Hague be felt locally and globally? How can The Hague serve as a springboard for developing SDG16 best practices?
– Drivers of Justice in the context of Sustainable Cities: How can decision-making in other SDG’s (i.e. SDG11) ensure just and inclusive outcomes for citizens?
– What is Peace and Justice? What do citizens need? How can we increase citizen engagement with SDG16?
– Tools to support Peace and Justice workers. During this pandemic, what are good adaptive tools and strategies that can support the continuation of the results for SDG16?
You were not there last time? You can find out more about the kick-off and the themes that were developed on this page.
Do you wish to share this invitation with someone else? Feel free! You can invite other peace and justice workers to join this and future sessions.
Peace-builders, data analysts, researchers, political decision-makers, people on the front-line, and many other ´hats´ are invited to join COP16. In order to bring about more justice, more peace and more inclusive societies we should take up time and space in which to exchange, to find opportunities, and ultimately sustain or grow your impact.
