The event will include the inaugural Basel Peace and Climate action by European Youth (PACEY) Award. This is a €5000 award to support an outstanding or innovative European youth project or proposal on action for the climate, peace and/or nuclear disarmament.
The roundtable meeting will be held in conjunction with the Basel Peace Forum, an annual event involving experts and decision-makers from politics, business, civil society, and academia focusing on key issues for maintaining peace in Europe and globally. The theme of the 2020 Basel Peace Forum, which takes place on January 9-10, is Cities in Time of Conflict & Peace. The program includes some exciting interative pavilions, one of which will be run by PNND and the Basel Peace Office.
