Zurich For Peace: 100 Years Women’s Peace Conference
WILPF Switzerland and WILPF international, along with Peace organisations in Switzerland, in Europe, and globally will convene in Zurich on 11 May 2019 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the second Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom.
The conference will recall the political and societal situation after the end of WW1, when courageous women campaigned for equal participation of women in the prevention of future wars, and elaborated on the important role of civil society in peacemaking. The conference will give women and civil society space to revive their vision for change. During the conference, there will be a reenactment of the 1919 Zurich Congress. In the afternoon, participants will engage in a variety of workshops.
Date and location: Saturday, 11 May, 2019, Glockenhof Zurich, Sihlstrasse 31, CH-8001 Zurich
