The Schengen Peace Foundation and organisers of the Luxembourg Peace Prize have announced that the latter will be holding a "Peace and Covid" Webinar on Wednesday 27 May 2020 at 17:00 - 19:00 CET.

This webinar calls upon some of Luxembourg Peace Prize's Laureates, past and present, to provide an analysis of the challenges facing our world today.

The webinar replaces the postponed in-person ceremony that had been planned for the same day. If the format works well, more webinars will be planned over the course of the year to feature other laureates, past and present, grouping by theme.
The 2020/2021 Luxembourg Peace Prize ceremony was scheduled to take place as part of the 5th Annual Transatlantic Dialogue conference at the University of Luxembourg. In keeping with the measures being taken around the world to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person Luxembourg Peace Prize 2020 ceremony has been postponed to Friday 28 May 2021.
