Peace Justice Conference 2023
“United in building utopias”
The 2023 conference took place over three days and was filled with workshops, keynote speeches, discussions, debates, art installations, opportunities for human connections, good food and music.
The conference was inaugurated with a community meal in which we extended our table to new and old friends, encouraging dialogue over simple and good food.
Taking inspiration from last year’s experience, the participants were divided in working groups and challenged to use their experiences and the different workshops and speeches they could take part in during the conference to find solutions to different challenges inside the topics of: climate justice, community and politics, equality and education. Those solutions were put together and buried into time capsules which we will open next year to see how those ideas moved.
