Summary

Since World War II, the world has become healthier, more prosperous and more peaceful than at any time in history. Yet sustaining this “long peace” is no easy task, as recent political, social and economic upheavals have shown. Join us to hear from the next generation of peace builders who are working in communities around the world to ensure that today’s challenges - from a record migrant population, to increasing unrest with global institutions of governance - do not reverse the hard-won gains of the last century. Rotary Peace Fellows and Harris Public Policy alumni shared their stories in TEDx style presentations at the home of Rotary International.
