ATLANTA HOSTS
GLOBAL PEACE CONVENTION 2012

A WORLD PEACE GATHERING OF INTERNATIONAL LEADERS

Atlanta will be the first city in the United States to host the Global Peace Festival Foundation’s annual Global Peace Convention, a preeminent, world-level platform engaging government and civil society leaders in a unique, collaborative exchange on the challenges of peace building and sustainable development in the twenty-first century.

Chaired by Georgia State Senator Emmanuel Jones, The Global Peace Convention 2012 will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on November 29 – December 1, 2012 and seeks to share best practices and develop collaborative strategies in areas of education, health care, environmental sustainability, community-driven development, and conflict resolution among public leaders from across the world.

The Convention theme, “Moral and Innovative Leadership: Building Healthy Families, Ethical Societies and a Global Culture of Peace,” will clarify the importance of principled leadership not only in public office, but in corporate life, the non-profit sector, and other areas of civic life as a precondition for social cohesion and peace.
