Presentation

The NCP Summer School will take place from September 1st to 5th, 2022 at the University of Caen (Normandy, France). It will be followed by 1 day of discovery of Normandy and its history on September 6th.

Students from various backgrounds and educational levels will gather in Normandy during this summer session to learn about key issues and initiatives undertaken by the Normandy Chair for Peace. The summer school is also open to university lecturers, researchers and professionals dealing with human rights and environmental law, alongside national and international officials, and NGO members.

This summer session provides an opportunity to deal with a wide range of themes concerning the historical need for a right of future generations. We will tackle an extensive array of subject matters such as climate change, transitional justice, the necessity of a dialogue with indigenous peoples, international environmental law, human security, and other interconnected issues.

On September 5th, the NCP summer school will hold a Model United Nations simulation on climate, existential risks, peace and human security to explore how multilateral negotiations take place.  Two training sessions in Zoom will take place in August with coaching provided by NCP members.

Based on the main principle that "We will have peace on Earth, when we will have Peace with the Earth", the NCP intends to widely share with Anglophone and Francophone participants expertise in the areas of future generations law, Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) and sustainable peace.
