Description

Join PSRP for a presentation on the PeaceFem app and how PeaceTech could support the Women, Peace and Security agenda. We will be discussing how women use PeaceTech/technologies for peacebuilding, how participants could use PeaceFem in their work, and what challenges there are with using PeaceTech.

This event is part of the Virtual Torino Forum for Sustaining Peace, hosted by United Nations System Staff College. Originally envisaged as a high-level event at the UN campus in Turin, Italy, the 2020 Torino Forum is leveraging innovation and technology to bring the Women, Peace and Security community together with the Youth, Peace and Security community for a series of virtual discussions and exchanges. The event will explore the status of the agendas of these respective communities in an open exchange with the wider peacebuilding community.
