Get Connected to Help You Build Peace Better

Global Peacebuilding networks

Take a look at the ten peacebuilding networks I have profiled below to find which networks are right for you, then connect. Note that these below are not international NGOs with global operations, but networks for groups and individuals. Also, while each is unique, all of these below are generally peacebuilding networks.

How to connect with the networks that are right for you

If you are involved in any peacebuilding effort or are interested in getting involved, you should get connected with some peacebuilding networks that are right for you. Try to choose two or three of these networks that most align with you.

  1. Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP): for large organizations in the global aid industry
  2. Geneva Peacebuilding Platform: peacebuilding knowledge hub
  3. United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY): for youth/young peacebuilders
  4. Peace Direct: local peacebuilding in conflict-affected contexts
  5. Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC): civil society organizations (CSOs) for prevention of armed conflict; with regional networks
  6. The Earth Charter (EC): a global movement for peace and sustainability
  7. Peace and Collaborative Development Network (PCDN): job boards and resources for social change career professionals
  8. +Peace: a campaign platform
  9. People Building Peace: for individual (experienced and aspiring) peacebuilders
