The Madrid World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace is a meeting place for local leaders, international organisations and networks, the academic world, NGOs and civil society. Its purpose is to open a joint process of debate, reflection and construction of common solutions that foster urban environments capable of eliminating expressions of violence.
In 2017, Madrid launched this initiative which aims to become a permanent global event to mark the commitment of cities to peace. This year, the 2nd World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace will be held at Matadero Madrid, from 5th to 8th November 2018.
The next UCLG World Council meeting will be convened under the framework of the Forum.
