The Peace Ambassadors will participate in four transformative days of speeches, 
panels, networking, and workshops, where they are counselled by influential 
political, business, and humanitarian leaders such as former UN Secretary 
General Ban Ki-moon, former Unilever CEO Paul Polman, and The Duchess of Sussex.

Delegates have the opportunity to share a platform, challenge, engage and make
