Miracle GOAfrica can become a development model for the initiatives taken by the authorities and to ensure a better coordination and effectiveness of international aid, both public and private.

Inside the charming picture frame of what was the amphitheatre of El-Djem, Riccardo Muti conducted the orchestra and the choir of the Maggio Fiorentino to a few arias of the Metistofele of Boito accompanied by the soloist voices of Alexia Voulgaridon, Keith Ikaia Purdy, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo. During the concert, even other voices echoed in the Tunisian desert. The Maestro Muti interrupted his music to make way to the voice of prayer coming from the Muezzin. That silence, which asted a few minutes, was significative for the purpose of the feeling of brotherhood amongst people and respect towards the Islamic religion which unites us together to one and only God.
The peace conference is the highlight of the World Peace Festival week bringing together experienced peace builders and leading decision-makers from the spheres of politics, business and civil society. The first conference day on 26 August 2011 started with the theme “Peace is your business!”, putting the focus on the economic impacts of building peace – an unprecedented approach for an international peace conference. In the opening sessions, successful global players, such as Steve Killelea (Institute for Economics and Peace), Jean Oelwang (Virgin Unite) and Mansoor Ijaz (Crescent Investment Management) outlined their visions, strategies and experiences about the role of corporates in furthering peace. Several speakers emphasised our responsibility as an international community in a globalized world – a world that is growing together more than ever before because of global connectivity and instant information exchange.
