peace conferences

In some major cities along the route, larger international events are planned, each with its own theme and organized by local partners. We have already received strong support from the Director-General of the UN Office in Geneva, the Pontifical Institute in the Vatican has agreed to help with a peace event in the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, and both the Presidents of Georgia and Armenia have agreed to support the conferences and the marches through their respective countries.
