In its fourth edition, Bogota will bring to the Forum the knowledge resulting from its experiences to nurture dialogues and reflections leading to the prevention and participatory resolution of conflicts, as well as to the strengthening of peace processes that arise in the cities and territories of the world.

Within this framework, and following the five thematic axes of the fourth edition of the Forum, a series of panel-type spaces, discussions and laboratories have been designed to facilitate the exchange of experiences and the appropriation of knowledge. In addition, a cultural agenda focused on peace and care initiatives has been added.
