A person with a doctorate in social psychology moderated the debate.

At first she asked a few questions to Mr. Laurent Ladouce, director of the cultural center Espace Culture et Paix, about his newly published book, The Pakxe Project. Using a PowerPoint presentation he illustrated the potential of Pakxe, a city in southern Laos, to become an international city for peace in South-East Asia.

The second speaker, Mrs. Martine Russe, a member of the Women's Federation for World Peace-France, shared her reflections on multiculturalism, and the moderator concluded by talking about personal experiences in intercultural relations.

About 40 people participated, and at the end, five participants received a certificate of Ambassador for Peace.
