Peace Direct is currently accepting applications for the 5th edition of its Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards 2017 to reward innovative peacebuilding organisations with the potential to build sustainable peace in their communities. Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards offer global recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict affected countries all over the world.

Eligibility Criteria

These are global awards. There is no geographical restriction on applications. In order to be eligible to enter, you must:

  • Community support: able to demonstrate community support for project, for example through voluntary efforts of community members.
