Launch of the Alliance

The Launch of a Global Partnership for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence

The Biennale of Luanda created an Alliance of committed partners that contributes to the promotion of the culture of peace in Africa around a common cause: the future of the African continent. Conceived as the main tool to create a multi-stakeholder and intersectoral partnership, the Alliance of Partners for the Culture of Peace is supporting the scaling up of flagship initiatives that have proven successful at local or sub-regional level in Africa.

The launch of Alliance of Partners took place on the closing day of the Biennale of Luanda (30 November), when the flagship Initiatives developed throughout the Thematic and Best Practices Forums were also presented. Ultimately, a Joint declaration and a road map on the implementation of these flagship Initiatives were adopted at the Closing ceremony.

The Biennale of Luanda is:
  • A privileged moment that brings together actors and partners involved in the prevention of violence and conflicts, peacebuilding and gives voice to African women and youth;
  • A platform that promotes cultural diversity and African unity with the participation of the diasporas worldwide;
  • A multi-stakeholder partnership between governments, civil society, the artistic and scientific community, the private sector and international organizations.
"We must, as a continent, all players working together, to really silence the guns by 2025. As UNESCO stated, wars begin in the minds of human beings, and it is also in the minds of human beings that the defense of peace must be constructed."
H.E. Mr. Bankole Adeoye AUC Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security
