The second meeting is dedicated to the Mediterranean basin, Friday 22 May 2020 at 18.00, live on the Facebook pages of Rondine (IT) and Rondine International Peace Lab (EN)
“Rondine World Room” is a cycle of live streaming meetings that sees Rondine’s students and ambassadors tackling highly topical issues related to the practice of youth leadership in the post-pandemic world. Discussion tables are organized by geographical areas that intend to return a global analysis, anticipating the new conflicts that are emerging at a political, social, and economic level and identifying new ways to transform them creatively. All meetings are held weekly every Friday at 18 and are live streamed on the Facebook pages of Rondine (IT) and Rondine International Peace Lab (EN).
After “Rondine World Room No. 1” dedicated to the Americas, the upcoming second round will be held on Friday 22 May 2020 from 18.00 to 19.00 CEST and will see the participation of H.E. Fayiz Khouri, Ambassador of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to Italy, H.E. Nicola Minasi, Ambassador of Italy to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Silvia Colombo, Head of Italy’s foreign policy programme at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI). The speakers will interact with two students from Rondine World House, Sara, Bosnian, and Elie, Middle Eastern. Furthermore, an alumno from Rondine, now a member of Rondine International Peace Lab, Clement Sangaré, will intervene from Mali. Moderated by Giampiero Gramaglia, journalist, Istituto Affari Internazinali (IAI).
The Leaders for Peace campaign, launched by Rondine at the end of 2018 and today in the middle of its second year of activity, demands all 193 UN member states to invest in a new, young peace leadership through the support of a scholarship for promising young people and, at the same time, to include the teaching of human rights in their national school curricula with the help and support of the Rondine Method. In May 2020, the campaign, supported by Fondation Assistance Internationale, sees the official support of the Italian government, the moral one of the President of the Italian Republic and the Holy Father and boasts a series of international supporters for its high-level events such as Jordan, Armenia, Sierra Leone, the European Union, as well as important statements of affinity from other countries and international institutions. The ongoing Covid19 pandemic does not stop the campaign, which on the contrary finds new operational and meaningful tools that draw on digital diplomacy.
