Are you a peacebuilder? Do you need some support to help you grow your impact and strengthen your organisation? If yes, apply now to win the annual ‘Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders’ competition. Peace Direct believes that in every conflict there are local organisations doing remarkable work to prevent violence and build peace. The competition seeks to find the best emerging peacebuilding organisations across the globe.
Four winning entries will be selected by our expert peacebuilding jury. Each winning entry will receive:
- $4,000 funding for peacebuilding activities
- The opportunity to attend an international Peace Direct peacebuilder event or another peacebuilding exchange visit
- Online promotion of their work.
The winners will be announced on Armistice Day, 11 November 2014.
This is a global competition. There is no geographical restriction on applications. In order to be eligible to enter, you must:
- be a registered organisation or community association, established for at least 2 years
