On Monday 23 October, The Elders together with the British Council’s #FutureLeadersConnect - a global network for emerging policy leaders from the UK and around the world - will discuss possible pathways to peace in today's complex world.
In a panel discussion with young leaders, Lakhdar Brahimi and Martti Ahtisaari will discuss the steps needed to build peace and bridge the fault lines. Ban Ki-moon and Ernesto Zedillo, will then take part in an intergenerational Q&A session in which they will discuss how youth leaders can lay the groundwork for peace.
If you have ever wanted to ask a global leader about tackling the toughest issues in the world – peace, human rights, or how to build a better future – now is your chance to ask.
Join the conversation at 19.30pm UK (BST) by submitting your question using #WalkTogether and watch the event on Facebook Live.
