Pioneering Peace

Pioneering Peace

Date:

COVID-19 has hastened our use of technology and moved our lives almost wholly online. We have become more reliant on technology in everyday life. For peacebuilders, their experiences have been similar.  

In 2020, Shift Power for Peace, a collaboration between Peace Direct, Humanity United and Conducive Space for Peace launched the Digital Inclusion Fund to support local communities across the world, with funding to pivot their work online. 

Our new report, Pioneering Peace, describes the successful impact of the programme and details our lessons, challenges and opportunities for the future. 

We also set out a series of key recommendations for future digital support for communities preventing war and conflict. 

The report is available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.


This report was published by ‘Shift Power for Peace‘ , a joint initiative between Conducive Space for Peace, Humanity United and Peace Direct.
