Discover Just Peace Month in The Hague

The Hague is known to many as the International City of Peace and Justice – a reputation that was built on since the city hosted the first Peace Conference in 1899. Now, it is home to 480 international organisations who work together to foster a better world. But how do these organisations contribute to peace and justice? Find out during Just Peace Month!

Discover the Human Stories of Peace and Justice

This year’s theme focuses on Human Stories. From 20 September to 24 October, Just Peace Month offers an opportunity for everyone to find out more about the human stories behind the organisations working in The Hague to make the world a more just and peaceful place.  

Take part in a variety of activities, on and offline where you can go beyond the slogan International City of Peace and Justice, to hear more about daily realities and obstacles, and the dreams and inspiration that brings people here to The Hague.  

To kick-off this event, the organisers have put together walking tours on 19 September where you get to meet some of the people who work towards making the concept of peace and justice a reality in The Hague. In the run-up to United Nations Day on 24 October there will be numerous educational activities in The Hague themed around peace and justice.
