October 2018, Geneva - Exhibition and Meetings in the United Nations


Norway in Geneva, Permanent Missions to the UN and WTO/EFTA invitation to the panel discussion on child protection in emergencies and the opening of the exhibition Peacepainting - Children´s messages for equity and peace.


"I encourage you all to take a good look at the paintings that are displayed here today, read the texts that accompany them and to take their messages with you, as you proceed with your work here at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, and in your home countries.

One message that I find particularly relevant for our work here at the Palais des Nations is the rising peace dove that adorns the poster for this exhibition, painted by Malek. In the text that she has created for the painting, she writes:

Let us cast light onto injustice and create for it, an exit door."

Hans Brattskar - Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Norway to the United Nations and other International Organizations in Geneva
