the global movement for local peacebuilders

Let's tell the real stories of peace.

Building peace is not an easy task. This ground-breaking and lifesaving mission is carried out daily by thousands of local peacebuilders.

Local peacebuilders are rarely seen, scarcely reported, and almost always under-supported. Yet we’re everywhere. We transcend differences and help build bridges to lasting peace. 

We’re fighting for a world where peacebuilding is locally led and globally supported. Peace Starts Here is a celebration of local peacebuilders and our lifesaving work. Will you stand with us? 


Peace starts with you

Local peacebuilders pave the way for lasting peace in our communities. Yet we’re not always heard or even seen. When local peacebuilders are recognised, our efforts are better supported, and the peace we build can last. Join us now.
