About RISING Global Peace Forum

RISING Global Peace Forum is based in the iconic city of Coventry in the UK, global City of Peace and Reconciliation and UK City of Culture 2021.

Led by the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University, RISING Global Peace Forum started as a unique partnership with Coventry Cathedral and Coventry City Council.

RISING Global Peace Forum gathers peacebuilders, policymakers and academics from around the world to explore and promote brave and innovative strategies for resolving violent conflict and sustaining peaceful societies.

Launched in 2015 with RISING 15, followed by RISING 16 in 2016, RISING Global Peace Forum has evolved into a powerful force for global peace.

In 2017, RISING Global Peace Forum hosted events in the USA, Northern Ireland and Colombia.
