Cartoonists and friends of CARTOONING FOR PEACE will join the citizen’s walking this Sunday, January 11, 2015.
Thought up by the French cartoonist Plantu, Cartooning for Peace is an initiative born on 16 October 2006 at UN headquarters in New York. A two-day conference organised by Kofi Annan, the then Secretary General of the United Nations, brought together the twelve best-known political cartoonists in the world for "unlearning intolerance".
An exhibition was staged at the same time as the meeting.
A movement was born!
