To foster and make visible community-based peacebuilding around the world.
We will do this by means which will include:
Ensuring that people working for peace feel supported, knowledgeable and valued in their work and that they have the education, resources and networks they need to carry out their activities and improve their practice;
Creating a global clearinghouse of peacebuilding knowledge and practice;
Carrying out education for non-professionals and professionals;
Carrying out international collaborative, participatory, multi-local research projects; and
Inspiring and empowering others to take up the cause of peace and see themselves as peacebuilders.
