ACCORD’s Executive Director and the National President of JCI discuss the purpose and vision of Global Peace.
Global Peace, represented by Executive Director, Dr. Vasu Gounden, met with the current National President of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Norway, Ms. Nora Gamst and Mr. Karl Svendsen, JCI’s Skills Development Committee Member for Europe, in Oslo, Norway on 19 May. JCI is a new partner of Global Peace, with a memorandum of understanding (MOU) recently signed on 6th May in Accra, Ghana. The partnership between Global Peace and JCI gives both organisations the opportunity to share knowledge and resources to enable young people around the world to take action for peace and development.
Dr. Gounden shared the key purpose and vision for Global Peace and discussed the priorities for 2019 which included the 100 Cities 100 Dialogues initiative. The Dialogues will bring together young people with their decision-makers to share a platform to discuss their aspirations for what a better future will look like and their inputs in finding creative and innovative solutions to challenges our world faces.
Through the partnership and extensive network, Global Peace will collaborate with JCI leadership to bring the Inter-Generational-Dialogues (IGDs) to cities around the world. JCI Norway was formed in 1956 and has been in operation for over 60 years. Throughout the years, JCI Norway has been involved in numerous activities and development projects across the country through its many active citizens. Global Peace is excited at the prospect of hosting an IGD in Oslo in the coming months.
