WHAT WE DO
Policy & Research
We develop think-pieces, conduct research and offer trainings to explore opportunities to use digital technologies for peace and emergent challenges to peace related to digital technology.
We use digital technologies to build peace: we support peace innovators across the globe, working with local organisations to design and implement technology interventions to peacebuilding processes.
Addressing Digital Conflict
We transform conflicts that happen in digital spaces: we conduct research and interventions to address polarization on social and digital media in contexts across the globe.
Community of Practice
We foster a community of practice that thinks critically about conflict in the digital age through the annual convening of Build Peace, the leading global conference on peacebuilding, technology and the creative arts.
At Build Up, we are honest, open and vulnerable.
We’re not experts, we value knowledge, we engage in cross and trans disciplinary thinking. We give space to learn, encouragement to grow, and sometimes to err. We work with and support ourselves and others as whole people. We place stewardship, respect, love, peace and non-violence at the heart of our work. And our style is a bit punk: non-hierarchical, diverse and a little bit irreverent.
