The International Secretariat for Water along with organizing and participating partners – Geneva Water Hub, Geo Expertise,  the Graduate Institute, Swiss Water Partnership, Université de Genève, Water Initiative, and the World Youth Parliament for Water – are delighted to invite you to attend an Intergenerational Dialogue on Water and Peace. This Dialogue is taking place on Thursday, November 7th 9:00am – 10:15am in the context of Geneva Peace Week.

The Intergenerational Dialogue will bring together young and senior experts who will be matched in pairs to discuss the nexus between water and peace through three thematic dialogues. The exchange will showcase advanced student and young professionals’ contributions to peacebuilding. The discussion will allow an exchange of good practices and learnings.

The dialogue will explore the following themes:

  1. Local and inclusive water management practices for conflict prevention
  2. Water in contemporary warfare from a civilians’ perspective
  3. Fostering transboundary water cooperation

In addition to the discussion on the emerging humanitarian and diplomatic implications of water as an instrument for peace, this session will feature a special artistic intervention from the “Imagine BluePeace” call produced by the International Secretariat for Water, the World Youth Parliament for Water and the Geneva Water Hub.
