Bridging Peace Research & Community Action

The Everyday Peace Initiative

Our Vision

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 the most 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.
