From October, 15th to 17th 2021, the International Peace Bureau will hold its 2nd IPB World Peace Congress in Barcelona. Dedicated especially to the Youth, to young speakers and young participants alike, the IPBYN calls on peace-related youth organizations from around the globe to contribute with an event, workshop or activity over the entire course of the Congress. Topics should encompass, but are not limited to, Climate Change, Demilitarization and Disarmament, Social Justice, and Human Rights.
The International Peace Bureau is dedicated to the vision of a World Without War. The IPB Barcelona Conference aims to be the largest gathering of activists for peace in 2021, the year that the United Nations has declared the International Year of Peace and Trust. It’s also a big year for IPB, as we celebrate our 130th anniversary this is a time to reflect and organize for peace for our common security.
Barcelona is a city of peace – one of the few in the world with an organized and resourced commitment to promote and campaign for peace – and it has opened its arms to the IPB, with both the city and the region playing an active role in preparing for the congress.
The city is the home of the host and IPB member, Centre Delàs, which is a hive of activity for peace, research, and campaigns regionally and globally.
