About Us

RISING annual Global Peace Forum pushes forward new ways of thinking about peace and conflict in our turbulent world.

We are led by Coventry City Council, Coventry University and Coventry Cathedral and supported by our Patron, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.

Our first annual international symposium,RISING 15, will take place in November 2015 in the iconic city of Coventry, where the Cathedral Ruins stand as an enduring and potent international focal point for peace and reconciliaiton.

RISING15 will bring together global leaders, practitioners and advocates working for peace. They will share brave and creative ideas that challenge us to go beyond conventional thinking and change how we approach threats and confrontations in our societies.
