Bridging Peace Research & Community Action
The Everyday Peace Initiative
The goal of The Everyday Peace Initiative is to inspire people to be ‘everyday peacebuilders’ by taking action and build peace in their own life and community. We believe that people’s action is powerful and it leads to big changes, even though they may seem small. We envision a worldwide community of everyday peacebuilders sharing their experiences to support one other. The Everyday Peace Initiative brings together peace research and people’s peace knowledge to maximize the impact of everyday peace action at grassroots level.
The Everyday Peace Community Platform
The Everyday Peace Community is a powerful digital platform that we have created to provide digital tools for social change actors and people interested in learning and doing more about change. The platform and App are packed with features for online learning, networking, organizing, brainstorming, sharing events, crowdfunding, researching, listing or finding social change jobs, funding, and so much more!
