WORLD ROOM: LEADERS FOR PEACE DURING THE PANDEMIC

Inevitably, the Covid19 pandemic and social distancing measures imposed all organizations working in grassroots diplomacy a rethinking in terms of how to act, how to approach their public activities in light of the new scenario and, on top of that, of the impossibility to host in-person events.

In particular for Rondine that meant the impossibility to take advantage of the experience of the Citadel in Arezzo as a unique place where to host events and advocacy meetings, where to know our international students coming from conflict and post-conflict areas. To not halt the campaign and its advocacy activities, Rondine launched World Room: a series of online dialogues between students, Ambassadors, and representatives of international organizations.

World Room has been a journey around the world in five episodes: the Americas, the Mediterranean basin, Europe, Africa, and the Caucasus. 15 among current students and alumni have had the opportunity to present the Leaders for Peace campaign and discuss its main topics with Ambassadors from nine countries, and representatives of two international institutions, the EESC and ECOWAS. Moreover, four international experts attended the meetings as moderators or speakers.

The series has been live-streamed on Rondine’s social media and has been followed by an average of 1060 users per episode. The series hosted representatives of Mexico, Colombia, Jordan, Italy, France, Slovenia, Lithuania, EESC, ECOWAS, Armenia and Georgia.
