Are you a local peacebuilder?
We are pleased to be supporting the German non-profit organisation For Peace / Love for Life, who are building an initiative called For Peace to promote the establishment of a Federal Ministry for Peace in Germany (similar to a cabinet level Department of Peacebuilding) and a UN Resolution calling for the creation of Departments of Peace worldwide.
Love for Life seek your input as local peacebuilders!
“One of our main objectives is to connect the grassroots and local level with the political and decision-making level to ensure that what we are creating is responding to the realities on the ground and meeting the needs of the people working to build and sustain peace locally.”
