Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Award 2019 ($10,000 Prize + Fully Funded to Washington DC)

Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Award 2019

Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders is the global awards for innovation in local peacebuilding. Through the annual awards, Peace Direct offers international recognition for organisations trying new or different peacebuilding approaches or new organisations doing peacebuilding where it hasn’t been done before. These are the only global awards for local peacebuilders – inspiring individuals who are building a better tomorrow in the world’s most fragile places.

Awarded annually, it offers international recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict-affected countries worldwide. These are inspiring people who are building a better tomorrow for their communities, in the most fragile and needy places.

This year’s categories are:
  • Women-led peacebuilding
  • Youth-led peacebuilding
  • Music & performing arts
Three organisations will each receive $10,000 and online promotion of their work. A representative from each of the winning organisations will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the award ceremony at PeaceCon 2018 in Washington, DC.
