Event Description

The Summit Planning Team invites you to attend the 5th Summit of the Global Alliance for Ministries and Departments of Peace in Cape Town, South Africa. The Summit Theme is Ubuntu in Action. Ubuntu is an African philosophy which can be explained as a belief that a person is a person through other people. Ubuntu is characterized by an awareness of the interconnectedness that we share as human beings. Acts of Ubuntu might involve generously sharing with others. South Africa welcomes you in the spirit of Ubuntu.

Highlights of the 5th summit’s program include:
  • Progress reports from Ministries and Departments of peace and campaigns
  • Presentations by Ministries and Departments of Peace already established
  • Workshop on Engaging with Government
  • Workshop on Ubuntu values
  • Empathic Civilizations
  • Panel discussion on Infrastructures for Peace
  • Peace Economics
  • African Alliance for Peace presentation on pre-election violence
  • The role of Ministries and Departments of Peace in addressing a sustainable global peace
  • Youth Summit – includes the role of social media in campaigns and peace building
  • Visit the South African Parliament and the Iziko Slave Museum

The Summit Programme is set to be an exciting one, with speaker invitations being sent to His Grace, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Dr Mamphela Ramphele, former South African President Thabo Mbeki, Graca Machel, Ela Gandhi, Wangari Mathai, Kofi Anan, Professor Geoff Harris, Professor Marion Keim-Lees, Professor Uma Mesthrie Dephelia, the Premier of the Western Cape, Ms Helen Zille, Minister of Justice, Minister Jeff Radebe, Pregs Govender and Dr Charles Villa Vincencio of the Institute of Justice and Reconciliation.

The host organisation, the South African Peace Alliance and the international Summit Planning Team look forward to making your summit experience an engaging and innovative experience.

I need to attend this one. But what are the logistic arrangements- accommodation, catering, transport, etc. I know Cape Town is a tourist town and obviously, quite pricy- makomborerog@gmail.com
