Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards ($10,000 Prize) | Diplomacy Opportunities

The Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards were launched in 2013 by Peace Direct. They are the only awards of their kind in the world. The winners receive global publicity and cash prizes. They are chosen by an international panel of experts including distinguished practitioners, political figures and media. In the last three years, 963 entries were received from 91 countries. The prize winners worked with ex-child soldiers in Uganda, young people in Israel-Palestine, villagers hit by drug wars in Colombia, tribal groups in Papua New Guinea and more.

Three winning organisations will each receive $10,000 and online promotion of their work. One prize is available in each of the three categories: Women-led peacebuilding, Youth-led peacebuilding and Inter-religious peacebuilding
