Deadline: September 15, 2015
Peace Direct is now accepting applications for the Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Global Awards 2015. Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders are the global awards for local peacebuilding. Awarded annually, they offer international recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict-affected countries worldwide. These are inspiring individuals who are building a better tomorrow for their communities, in the world’s most fragile and needy places.
The winners receive global publicity and cash prizes. They are chosen by an international panel of experts including distinguished practitioners, political figures and media.
Three winning organisations will each receive $10,000, an invitation to attend a winners’ event in London, and online promotion of their work. They will be chosen from one of the five categories below:
These are global awards. There is no geographical restriction on applications. In order to be eligible to enter, you must:
- Undertake peacebuilding work – your organisation is either a peacebuilding organisation or has peacebuilding as a substantial element of your work.
- Be locally based – your organisation must be based in the country or communities where your work will be done. If your organisation operates in multiple countries, you are not eligible to enter. (Note cross-border projects are eligible.)
- Be an independent organisation, not an in-country or satellite organisation of an international NGO.
- Be working, or planning to work, in at least one of the following thematic areas: women-led peacebuilding; youth peacebuilding; environmental peacebuilding; inter-religious peacebuilding; arts and peacebuilding; or technology and peacebuilding.
