Just Peace Festival

In short


21 September 2018


13:00 - 18:00


Main campus

During the weekend of 20-24 September, The Hague will be completely swept away by the Just Peace Festival. With a wealth of activities, the city will celebrate the U.N.-declared International Day of Peace (21 Sept) together with you.

You can take your pick from a number of festivities during the Just Peace Festival, such as running events, debates, tours and (photo) exhibitions. Sneak a peek behind the scenes at a number of international organisations working towards a better world when they open their doors to the public for 1 day.

This is also a really important topic for The Hague University of Applied Sciences. That’s why we’re proud to offer the following two events:

  1. Workshop Nonviolent Communication by Mi Jung van der Velde M.A. LL. MBA
    Innovation Playground from 13:00 - 14:00, main building THUAS
    The practical tools to engage others through Nonviolent Communication provided in this workshop can be used in formal negotiating settings and in private life.
  2. Masterclass International Negotiation by Sami Faltas
    Speakers’ Corner from 14:00 - 18:00, main building THUAS
    The objective of this simulation exercise is to practice and sharpen multilateral negotiation skills,  analyse verbal and non-verbal negotiation behavior to better understand the challenges of negotiating and building peace.
