Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, Favoritenstraße 15a, 1040 Vienna, Austria

The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) extend a cordial invitation to you to attend a special event to be convened in Vienna, Austria, on October 30th and 31st 2015 on the theme “Europe-Eurasia Dialogue: Building Trust and Securing Cooperation for Sustainable Development” at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. The partner organizations include ACUNS Vienna and the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna.
The event is the fifth in a series of Europe-Eurasia leadership conferences aiming at developing partnership and cooperation between the two regions, in place of the friction and, at times, open antagonism that has been marking their history, and in light of their critical role for world peace in the 21st century. Attended by leading figures from the areas of politics, religion, business, academe and diplomacy, Europe – Eurasia leadership conferences began in 2012 in Moscow (“Peace and Security in Multicultural Societies”) and Vienna (“Europe and Russia – Partners in a Globalized World”); the series continued in 2013 in Paris (“Europe and Eurasia: Cooperating for a Culture of Peace and Human Development”) and in 2014 in Chisinau (“Eurasia - Europe Dialogue for Peace”). In February 2015 a panel discussion on “The Imperative of an EU–Russia strategic reset” was organized in Vienna.

Alongside this year's celebrations marking the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, one significant milestone is the proclamation by the General Assembly of the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals. The conference will be an opportunity to explore grounds for cooperation between Europe and Eurasia in the context of the next 15-year objectives of sustainable development outlined by UN delegates.
