About the Peacemakers Network
The Network for Religious and Traditional Peacemakers (Peacemakers Network) facilitates connections between grassroots peacemakers and global players to enhance sustainable peace efforts. It supports the positive influence of religious and traditional actors in collaborative peacebuilding and peace mediation.
By fostering collaboration among diverse actors with shared goals, the Peacemakers Network operates inclusively, across multiple tracks, spanning from the local to the global level. It establishes consortiums comprising international organizations and local actors to maximize resources and achieve sustainable results. Initiatives are closely coordinated with local religious and traditional actors.
2022 Year in Review
Throughout 2022, the work and collaboration of our members, supporters, and grassroots actors showed tremendous resilience, responsibility, and dedication to support one another and our communities. Now, more than ever, we must unite as one community to collectively strive for inclusion and mutual understanding. We look forward to continuing to champion the role and capacity of local peacemakers, and working alongside our members, to promote sustainable peace and the actualization of the 2030 agenda.
