Last week the ICJ Council of an international Model UN Conference visited the Peace Palace for a brainstorm session on the topic: '100 Years Peace Palace: What's Next?' Three groups each wrote an elevator pitch for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on peaceful settlement of disputes. The results will be part of a short movie, shown at the Peace Palace centennial on 28 August and representing a message from the youth to current world leaders.
Under the heading of the Peace Palace celebrations, I would like to draw your attention to an independent event about the future of international peace and justice. We will hear from several inspirational speakers about the righteous world of the future and their views on how to achieve this more peaceful world. The event can be followed by live streaming.
