Brussels, January 21st, 2016 (SIGNIS). The SIGNIS Board decided that our next World Congress and Assembly would be held at Laval University in Québec City, Canada, in June 2017.

The theme of the Congress will be Media for a Culture of Peace: Promoting Stories of Hope. After a visit by the Executives and in consultation with Board members, Congress dates have been set for June 19th to 23rd, 2017. The 2016 Board meeting will also be held at the proposed Congress venue.

It will be a pleasure to stay for a week in this majestic city, recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1985. With its half a million inhabitants, Québec City boasts a lively cultural scene, hosting several major festivals, including the Festival d’été, New France Festival and its famous Winter Carnival.
