Everyone a Peacebuilder
Peacebuilders, community leaders, and entrepreneurs around the world are already harnessing the power of phones, tablets, and desktops. They're challenging the perception of conflict zones as voids because today’s reality is more than just violence: it’s innovation hubs and hackerspaces. It’s cell phones charging and airtime selling. It’s social media revealing vast amounts of human sentiment - the DNA of conflict.
And you do not have to be on the ground in a conflict zone to participate. Connections around the world are right at our fingertips.
Just by accessing this web page you've shown that you already have the tools to join the peacetech movement.
PeaceTech Lab works for these individuals and communities affected by conflict, using technology, media, and data to accelerate local efforts.
But we can't do it alone.
"For the first time in human history, people have the ability to send images, video, information, & money around the globe with a push of a button."
