The UCLG City of Bogotá Peace Prize will be presented by the organizing partners (the City of Bogotá, VNG International, Province of Barcelona and PAX) to the media, international organizations, embassies and other interested parties. The process for the selection of the award winning will be explained and the website will be launched.
