Peace. Living it!
in honor of Nelson Mandela
Rome – 14th Summit 12-14 December 2014
After a six-year break the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates returned in Rome, the city where the official Summit organizer, the Permanent Secretariat is based and where the World Summit was born and its first 8 editions have been hosted, renewing its spirit as a meeting point of the ideals of Peace.
The Summit commemorated the life and work of Nelson Mandela as a global icon for peace, the man who gave his life in the name of Peace and Freedom. The man, who managed to influence entire generations through his timeless example, is still a symbol of courage and perseverance. It extended a message to the many young people who watched and participated in the events of the 2014 World Summit, whether by attending the event in Rome, or viewing the international live stream over the internet: even the most difficult and intractable problems can be solved peacefully through goodwill and genuine negotiations.
