Paris, France, 11-12 November 2022 - How do we ride out the multicrisis that the world is experiencing right now? From worsening climate change, successive Covid-19 waves and deepening inequalities, to new and lasting geopolitical conflicts of global consequences, the stakes could not be higher. How do we prevent a destructive world polarisation that would jeopardise collective efforts on critical challenges for humanity?

The 2022 Paris Peace Forum convened world leaders and civil society to seek answers to these questions in Paris on 11-12 November.
