Get creative by organizing an event related to peacebuilding and violence prevention. Here are some ideas:

  • Organize a talk or discussion. Contact us for ideas or to secure a speaker or panel for your class, place of work, community organization or other venue.

  • Host a documentary screening. Screen a topical film about political violence, peacebuilding, and the effects of conflict in communities around the world. Click here for recommended films.

  • Hold a debate on a topic important to you. For example, what is political violence? What is peace? How does this affect your community? What can individuals and communities do to help?

  • Celebrate the International Day of Peace. Held on September 21 each year, this day provides an opportunity to host an event to share what peace means to you and your group.
