Workshop - UCLG City of Bogotá Peace Prize Finals

13 october
18.00 to 19.30


The UCLG City of Bogotá Peace Prize is a triennial award for (a coalition of) local governments that have implemented initiatives in conflict prevention, conflict resolution or peace building, that are proven to have had a significant positive impact. The prize aims to contribute to full acknowledgement of the important but often overlooked role of local governments as peace building actors, thus creating a more effective approach to conflict resolution.
Supported by UCLG and its members, the UCLG Peace Prize has been made possible by contributions, financial and in terms of content, by the City of Bogotá, the Provincial Council of Barcelona, the Dutch NGO PAX and VNG International, the international cooperation agency of the VNG.
The high-level jury of the UCLG City of Bogotá Peace Prize has selected the five finalists for the prize. In this session, these finalists will present their initiatives for the jury and audience. The jury will decide on the winner after the session and the prize will be awarded during the General Assembly on 14 October.
