This event was the second of three Peace Weeks as part of the Raising Peace global campaign, launched in 2014. The campaign aims to unite International Voluntary Service (IVS) networks, empower volunteers, advocate for human rights, and foster collaboration with civil society organizations for a culture of peace.
