Coming Soon— Exploring the Digital Peacebuilders Guide

Digital technologies affect how we experience conflict. Whether it’s hate speech in our social media or bringing together diverse groups for online training, digital tools can harm & help our peacebuilding initiatives. But where to start? How to know if it’s best to build a chatbot, make a video game or teach people about misinformation? That’s why the Digital Peacebuilders Guide asks you first: What are you trying to achieve as a peacebuilder? Once you know that, you’ll see that there are multiple options for using digital tools to achieve your goals. The Digital Peacebuilders Guide was developed by Build Up & Search for Common Ground.
