1 year of the World's military expenditure OR 700 years of the UN regular budget OR 2,928 Years of the budget for UN Women?
Following the 2011 WILPF International Congress, our priority is challenge militarism: Invest in Peace. That's why it is so appropriate that our annual seminar is part of this year's 16 Days of Activism Campaign, themed “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let's Challenge Militarism and End Violence Against Women!”
The seminar aims to provide the tools to challenge violence and militarism and identify the building blocks for peace: inspiration and information from high profile speakers; interactive workshops to experience activities that shape politics, the media as well as action to challenge militarism and build an international culture of peace.
