The Inter-Generational Dialogues (IGDs) is a pioneering platform where we want young future leaders to dialogue with current leaders on their aspirations for what a better world should look like and offer inputs on how to shape it.
We want young people to steer the conversation and be guided by our 4 principles: 1) cooperation, tolerance and shared values; 2) the building of inclusive economies; 3) protection of our shared environment, and 4) the sharing of knowledge for human progress and the Action Plan for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The IGDs brings together individuals from various disciplines, backgrounds and age groups representing academia, government, business, students and youth leadership, and civil society organisations to share their insights and thoughts on issues pertaining to peace and development. The IGDs discuss topical global issues towards addressing the challenges we face as a global community.
Global Peace hosted a Global Inter-Generational Dialogue (IGD) during the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) World Congress as a celebration of the 25 successful IGDs held during 2019 as part of Global Peace’s 100 Cities 100 Dialogues initiative.
