For the fourth consecutive year, the Paris Peace Forum gathered hundreds of speakers from around the globe, representing a variety of sectors, standing united in diversity as they discussed solutions rather than problems.
This forum will focus on spurring a more solid and inclusive recovery by addressing the various gaps in global governance, offering initiatives to better tend to the global commons, and putting forward new principles of action for the post-COVID world.
The forum complemented the COP26 efforts on climate by pushing for faster mitigation and deeper adaptation and featured new initiatives including the governance of climate risks, as well as focusing on biodiversity and oceans. The same went with the governance of the digital space, with the intensification of the work on cybersecurity (the Paris Call), AI ethics and the Digital Bill of Rights initiative.
