Our First Public Presentation

 

Chris Hamer, President of the Coalition for a World Security Community, gave the first public presentation of our idea at the Paris Peace Forum. Thanks to the support of the Global Challenges Foundation, five members of our Coalition were manning a booth at the Forum and interacted with hundreds of local and national government officials, international organizations, NGOs, foundations, companies, experts, journalists, trade unions, religious groups and citizens. Marking the 100th anniversary of the armistice of World War I, the Forum started with a gathering of heads of state hosted by President Macron. The next couple of days were a grand fest for NGOs to present innovative ideas in the areas of peace and security, new technologies, inclusive economy, development, and environment. Ostensibly dedicated to peace, we were actually one of the very few voices articulating an actual vision for world peace.
