One hundred years ago, the seeds for global cooperation were planted with the signing of an international peace treaty. Establishing itself along the shores of Lake Geneva, the League of Nations began to lay lasting groundwork for multilateral diplomacy and to develop methods for peacemaking.
“In these changing and uncertain times, we must emphasize that multilateralism is not experiencing a crisis, but a transition in global order.”
Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva
Secretary-General of the Conference on Disarmament
The 100Elles* project on gender and equality highlights the role of 100 women, people with marginalized orientations or gender identities and intersex people, who have made positive contributions to Geneva.
