Peace starts here

There’s never been a more important time to work towards peace.

Thinking "local first" is a revolutionary way of looking at conflict. It recognizes that while outsider-interventions are often necessary to save lives in the short term, long term peace and security depends on local people with the power and resources to manage, resolve, and prevent conflict before it flares out of control. This is Peace Direct's driving belief.

Practical Peace is our official newsletter, and it's dedicated to the power and promise of local peacebuilding. Subscribe today to receive regular, timely correspondence: Learn more about our partners and their recent successes, get updates on conflict prevention efforts around the globe, read deeper research about the power of local peacebuilding, and find out more about how you can support peace from the ground up.
