WHAT WE DO
Policy & Research
We develop think-pieces and conduct research to explore opportunities to use digital technologies for peace and emergent challenges to peace related to digital technology.
Peace Innovator Programs
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.
Digital Conflict Programs
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 host a global community of practice around peace and technology, convened at an annual conference: Build Peace. We offer trainings and networking opportunities to foster this community.
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.
