Veronica Sabbag – Founder
A global citizen with a passion for music, a multicultural background and life-long international experience, for whom culture has no borders. Having served for the European Union in different postings for more than 20 years, including in the EU Mission to the United Nations in New York, and having dealt with some of the most challenging world conflicts with global impact, I have witnessed the limitations of traditional diplomacy. Today’s major challenges can only be addressed through the mobilization and cooperation across diverse stakeholders toward shared goals. I am convinced that by uniting our voices by this citizen-led cultural peace initiative, we will make a significant contribution to spreading the culture of respect for diversity, mutual understanding, acceptance and dialogue through the universal language of music and the arts, making our world a better place for all of us.
Looking forward to hearing YOUR VOICES.
