Cartooning for Peace and the Economic, Social and Environnemental Council organize an international seminar on Press Cartoons and Freedom of SpeechÂ on September, 21 in Paris.
The strong emotions generated by the events of January 2015, in Europe and around the world, together with a new awareness of the growing chasms between communities in our societies, have warranted a decision to create an important venue, open to the largest possible audience, all those who wish to exchange ideas and debate on Freedom of Speech and press cartoons.
Press cartoons make us smile, convey messages in a direct way and encourage thinking: they are, undeniably, devices in the service of dialogue and tolerance. By laying the foundations of a serene and peaceful debate, this seminar seeks to suggest concrete solutions in order to live together, free.
On September, 21 at Palais D’IÃ©na (CESE – Paris)
