The speakers included Mrs Mariam Gavtadze (Board of Directors of the Tolerance & Diversity Institute), Mr Beka Mindiashvili (Head of the Tolerance Centre), Mr Malkhaz Songhulashvili (Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia) and Mr Rolf Bareis (Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Georgia).

The event began with a recitation from the Holy Quran with its English and Georgian translations, followed by an introduction to the Jamaat’s contribution to peace.

After the speech of Mr Malkhaz Songhulashvili, the President and Missionary of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Georgia, Jawad Ahmed Butt Sahib, delivered a speech. In addition, the guests were shown a video of the worldwide peace efforts of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa.

In the end, the audience was also given the opportunity to give feedback or comment on the question of how to contribute to world peace. The viewers also gave positive comments on this and on the organisation of the event in general. Each audience member also received a gift: the Georgian translation of the keynote address by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa at the 2024 National Peace Symposium UK.
