From 9 am to 1 pm, at the Forum Genève, Syrian victims will share their experiences in a public hearing-style event examining the impact of the destruction of schools before a global audience that includes activists, policy makers, international organizations, and more.

The Panel of Conscience will be presided by:
- Navanethem "Navi" Pillay, former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.- Pablo De Greiff, UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence.- David Tolbert, President of the International Center for Transitional Justice.
