WHAT WE DO
Policy & Research
We develop think-pieces and conduct research to explore what innovation can bring to peacebuilding.
Working with Innovators
Through our Fellows programs, we support local peacebuilders to lead the design and implementation of innovations in their communities.
We directly implement a handful of innovative peacebuilding projects in two focus areas: participatory video and depolarization on social media.
Community of Practice
We convene Build Peace, the leading global conference on peacebuilding and innovation, which convenes 300+ practitioners and thinkers annually.
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.
