10 lessons learned in peace-building
and environment in Colombia

october 3, 2020

Within the framework of the Peace Lessons project, which we are developing with the support of the United Nations and the Embassy of Sweden, we have studied and demonstrated the efforts of various initiatives that work for the environmental conservation of their territories, thus promoting the economic and social development of their communities and contributing to the construction of peace. From the dialogue with the leaders of these initiatives, as well as academics, environmentalists, and journalists, we identified 10 lessons learned in sustainable peace* through actions and processes of peace building and environmental conservation. Here we present them to you:
