Call for Content: Help Us Shape Just Peace Month with Your Activities!

The Just Peace Month showcases the variety of ways that The Hague is working on peace and justice both nationally and internationally. By connecting residents of the city with organisations and the themes they are working on, the Just Peace Month celebrates, informs and enlightens a wide variety of participants. Past editions have seen Hague-based international organisations open their doors to the public through the Just Peace Festival. During this year’s Just Peace Month, activities organised by organisations in The Hague will take place over a 4-week period between September 21 and October 24.

Who is it for?

Just Peace Month activities are tailored to many different sections of the public including Hague citizens, (inter)national visitors, expats, residents of the Hague region, students, NGOs and International organizations both in The Hague and internationally.  

What can you do?

Are you an organisation working on peace and justice in The Hague? Does your work contribute to peace locally, nationally, or globally? Are you interested in connecting to the public or showcasing your work? We are inviting you to present us your activities and events ideas under the overarching theme “Hope in times of adversity”.

What will it look like?

We will kick off Just Peace Month 2022 on the International Day of Peace, September 21. The programme will end with a closing event on Sunday 24 October, on United Nations Day. In the five weeks in between, there will be events organised by partners & several ‘pillar’ events (co-)created by the Humanity Hub with interested partners.  

We are inviting you to organise your own events under the umbrella of the Just Peace Month. 

Do you want to support the Humanity Hub in developing “pillar events”? Our pillar events include:   

  1. Walking Tours: The walking tours will be in small groups, guided by volunteers, and will feature peace-and-justice-related locations in The Hague. We are organising logistics, registration, and volunteers. Do you want to participate by having a representative of your organisation welcome tour groups and speak about your work and the organisation?
  2. Talent Event (i.e., Career Fair): During this even we would like to showcase organisations to students and young professionals. In this networking event we hope to bring interested organisations closer to students and young professionals and facilitate an interaction on career and talent.
  3. Open Day: During the Open Day we are calling on organisations to open their doors to the public. This is an excellent opportunity to present your daily work and operation and to build closer ties to the public of The Hague.
