The summit aims to bring together government ministries, civil society organizations including youth and women, media, educators and religious leaders to seek practical solutions for peacebuilding.
It will provide a platform for former and current leaders of Africa to advocate an intergenerational dialogue to promote sustainable peace and security and develop a legal framework for a conflict-free Africa.
As a resolution to establish a legal framework for peace that can be implemented at both national and international level, the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) will be discussed in the various sessions including peace education, civil society, and youth.
The DPCW addresses principles of conflict resolution and international cooperation for peacebuilding such as respect on the international law, peaceful dispute settlement, and spreading a culture of peace. It also shares the vision of the Agenda 2063 supporting the goal, a peaceful and gun-free Africa.
