Peace Direct Awards
The eighth annual Peace Direct Awards, previously known as the Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards, are now open for applications. The awards highlight the inspiring work that grassroots groups are doing to establish peace and rebuild communities in conflict-affected areas around the world.
At the end of the year we will be celebrating innovative grassroots peacebuilding efforts from around the world. In spite of it being a very difficult time for us all right now due to the Coronavirus, we are inviting organizations working in peacebuilding to apply for this award.
This year, we are focusing our search on one award category: technology in peacebuilding.
Is your organization, or an organization you know, making creative use of technology as a tool to resolve conflict and build peace? Whether it’s through mobile phones, websites, social media, radio, or another digital channel, we want to hear from you!
The winning organization will receive $10,000 and online promotion of its work. One person from the organization will be invited to the United States to receive the award at the annual PeaceCon conference in December in Washington, D.C., where the winner can meet other peacebuilders and supporters.
Applications will be accepted online from March 23 through April 27, 2020. You can submit your application here.
