The Raising Peace Network invites you to a series of talks about peace this Anzac Day Weekend. From 23rd – 25th April 2022, leaders in peace, diplomacy, and justice will speak on the most critical topics within the peace-security nexus: First Nations’ perspectives, climate change, AUKUS, and alternatives to war.
Each session will comprise a discussion between panellists, a Q&A with the audience and an informal chat afterwards to debrief on lessons learned.
Registrations essential. Please register here to reserve your spot.
