REGISTER AS A PARTICIPANT
Every year, between 150 and 200 people attend Build Peace as participants. Participants bring their experience to conference sessions, sharing it in questions, discussions and informal networking. Participants can also suggest impromptu sessions during the “Unconference” on the last day.
If you would like to attend Build Peace 2017 as a participant, you will need to acquire a conference ticket. Conference tickets give participants full access to the conference program over two and a half days. Conference tickets do not include travel to or accommodation at the conference location – participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. We offer a range of ticket prices to take into account different economic situations.
In recognition for their support to Build Peace 2017, all students and teachers at Universidad de los Andes can register for free.
APPLY TO CONTRIBUTE
We value the experience and expertise beyond our immediate network. Every year, we make a public call for applications to deliver short talks and organise workshops at Build Peace. Contributors receive free conference tickets and (to the extent possible) support with their travel and accommodation. Before applying to contribute, please review the conference program to ensure your contribution speaks to the Build Peace 2017 themes.
Workshops at Build Peace are 2 – 3 hour breakout sessions that offer a deep dive into an area of practice or research that is relevant to the conference topic. We will try to accommodate as many relevant workshops as we can.
Short talks at Build Peace are 5-minute presentations to the conference plenary about an ongoing or finished project, followed by questions from the audience. Every year, we receive about 100 applications for 12 spots.
