The first ever, Learning-to-live-together event – An AFS Global Conference
Setting an urgent agenda for global competence development
This Conference aims for real alignment and cooperation among all sectors who have a stake in developing global competence, whether in classrooms, lecture halls, study abroad programs, non-formal training environments or beyond.
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ALIGNMENT AMONG EDUCATORS, POLICYMAKERS, COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS LEADERS
The urgency of today’s challenges requires a united action from all who are invested in a globally-connected, peaceful future. The Conference will bring together educators, business leaders and innovators, policymakers and government representatives, international education and non-formal learning providers, community organizations, social entrepreneurs and volunteer leaders.
Let’s work together across sectors and countries to set an urgent agenda to meet the growing demand for global competence, by creating and aligning policies, tools and resources that empower educators to deliver these essential 21st century skills to learners at every life stage.

Along the lines of St. Francis, namely that “the Lord may give you peace”, we are pleased to welcome choirs from all over the world to Assisi and Perugia.
Assisi is a truly magical place that draws its particular character from the reminiscence of Saint Francis, the charming countryside that surrounds the town, and the important witnesses of its thousand-year-old culture. With its two-story basilica, Assisi is one of those rare places that can enable the mind of man to fly high.
Perugia, founded in the 6th century by the Etruscans, is the largest city in Umbria and with its fascinating Piazza Grande one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.
Join us on VOICES FOR PEACE, an inspiration for mind, soul and peace among mankind.
