At the end of the year, we will be celebrating innovative grassroots peacebuilding efforts from around the world with the Peace Direct Awards. Despite it being a very difficult time for us all right now due to Coronavirus, we are inviting organizations working in peacebuilding to apply for this award.
This year, we are focusing our search on one award category: technology in peacebuilding. Is your organization, or an organization you know, making creative use of technology to resolve conflict and build peace? Whether it’s through mobile phones, websites, social media, radio, or another digital channel, we want to hear from you!
The winning organization will receive $10,000 and promotion of its work. One person from the organization will be invited to the United States to receive the award at the annual PeaceCon conference in December in Washington, D.C., where the winner can meet other peacebuilders and supporters.
The application process is open from March 23 to April 27, 2020. We hope to hear from you!
