The theme we chose for the 2023 conference is ‘Peace Begins with Us.’ We intend our conference to promote knowledge, skills and attitudes to help people prevent conflict occurring, resolve conflicts peacefully, and create conditions for peace. The aim is to understand the causes of conflicts, improve communication skills, develop effective listening strategies and think critically about prejudice. We would like to provide opportunities to reinforce the principles of uniqueness in diversity and to establish the social norms of respect, dignity, and the rights of every individual.
