Roundtable: Peace and Security for Sustainable Development
On the observance of the International Day of Peace, ICV hosted a special gathering that marked the first time that three Nobel Peace Laureates directly engaged investors and philanthropists and their first contribution in New York since the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates obtained consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
At ICV Presents: An Evening with Three Heroic Women, Leymah Gbowee, Shirin Ebadi, Tawakkol Karman, shared their experiences and insights in meeting personal and global challenges and policies for a more peaceful, secure and sustainable world.
On this unique and special occasion, the small gathering investors controlling over $100 billion in assets gained new insights into the interconnected risks that may disrupt a well-thought-out portfolio designed for future generations and the interrelation between peace and sustainability.
