‘Joining Hands’ in Online Format
Participants of the Peace 50 meet regularly to discuss the key tasks and plans of the community. The Summer Peace Summit bringing together influential women from different countries takes place once a year. This year, the event had online format. However, the meeting proved to have the same atmosphere as before and the dialogue of participants was productive and meaningful.
This year, the Summer Peace Summit participants discussed solutions to the global crisis that became apparent as a result of the pandemic. Every woman was concerned about that topic. Representatives from different countries and fields of activities became the speakers of the Summit. Every speaker revealed the essence of the problem from her perspective, based on the field of her expertise.
One of the features in organisation of the Summer Peace Summit 2020 was that its participants joined the event from countries with different time zones. At the moment of the Summit, it was early morning in Canada and the high point of the working day in China. However, all women took the time and opportunity to share their experience, ideas, and opinions on addressing global problems with their like-minders.
Thanks to thinking through everything in detail carefully and warm and positive atmosphere, the meeting was very productive, lively, and unifying. The Summit participants managed to ‘join their hands’ and feel the warmth of one another’s heart even at a distance of thousands of kilometers.
To convey the atmosphere of the Summer Peace Summit, the Media Group of the Global Women Media news agency prepared a video about the event. The good quality of the video is not its only feature: it is made with great love.
Despite the fact that digital formats of communication can’t replace face-to-face interaction, this video is a proof that online meetings can be full of life as well.
