Build Peace 2020 will take place on this virtual platform. You can view the conference program on the virtual platform without registering. However, in order to participate in the conference, you will need to get a conference ticket by clicking on the “register” button on the platform.

Once you have registered, you will receive login credentials for the platform. If you had previously registered with us via Eventbrite, then you will receive an individual email with login credentials. There are five types of session available on the platform.

Plenary sessions will be livestreamed on the conference Main Stage. This will include keynotes, panels, short talks and evening performances.

Workshops will be interactive video conference sessions, each one has a different format explained in their description. You must register to attend these (up to 30 participants are allowed per workshop).

Networking events are online meet-ups where you will be paired with one other participant for a few minutes, then move on to someone else — kind of like speed-dating. You must register to attend these.

Expo booths will be available for viewing throughout the conference, showcasing products, projects and art related to the conference theme. You can pop in at any time to view the content, and there will be pre-designated times to chat with exhibitors.

The Unconference will be a space where any participant can offer to lead a session (guidelines on how to propose and run sessions are on the platform).
