Declaration Peace Conference June 2023

„International Summit for Peace in Ukraine” wanted to seek ways out of the war. The conference should have taken place in Vienna, at the headquarters of the trade Union ÖGB. It didn’t come to that because of a bomb alarm.

It was an experience! Against all odds, the conference took place in a spare room with 400 people (+200 online) from all continents. They could discuss with each other and encourage each other in their peace efforts. Attached please find the declaration in German.
