What will the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2021 look like?

The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2021 is a two-part virtual conference that brings together experts and practitioners to discuss current questions in the peacebuilding field. The first part, the Virtual Sessions from 27 to 29 April, will be hosted by FriEnt members and partner organizations from all over the world. The second part on 5 and 6 May will feature plenary sessions, breakout sessions and the political afternoon – all live as an interactive stream.

All participants are invited to join the virtual conference venue which creates an open and productive working atmosphere, with a wide range of opportunities to get engaged and exchange with a wide peacebuilding community.
