The Summit is held annually in different cities around the world, in cooperation with participating cities and with the support of foundations and Nobel Peace Prize laureates.

Since 1999, the Summit has been held in cities emblematic for world peace, such as Rome, Paris, Berlin, Hiroshima, Warsaw, Chicago, Barcelona and Bogotá.
