PEACE BUILDING

The Network is working on the creation of a Peace Building that would house professional and community-based organizations, both as a means of fostering collaboration and synergy, and to send a clear message about the value of peace in our society. The Peace Building will be a place where:

·        field experts from a multitude of NGOs work side-by-side;

·        mediators practice their dispute resolution and conflict prevention work;

·        academics conduct research and exchange findings;

·     stakeholders are trained in evidence-based strategies and tools.

The Peace Building will provide common spaces for the different stakeholders, including a reception area, meetings rooms, training facilities and an eating area. These spaces will foster opportunities for collaboration, creativity, and the sharing of knowledge, expertise, and best practices. In addition, the Peace Building will help reduce overhead costs, through the sharing of resources such as a receptionist, graphic artists, and translation services. Once it becomes a reality, the Peace Building will generate significant efficiencies and will increase social impact.

THE ETHICS OF COMMUNICATION

Interpersonal communication is a core element of our actions in the world. The force of words multiplied by technologies such as social media gives communication tremendous power which can do good by contributing to the development and maintenance of social harmony, but which can also cause great harm.

The Network wishes to develop workshops devoted to the ethics of communication for schools and workplaces. By providing opportunities for reflection on interpersonal communication, we wish to address a crucial question which effects the ability of every citizen to contribute to peace and social harmony.

IN SCHOOL SETTINGS

We want to make young people aware of the importance and impact of communication by offering them an opportunity to reflect on the choice of words, their strengths and meaning, the role of participants, the importance of tone of voice, freedom of expression, etc. These questions allow us to approach and better understand the ethical issues of interpersonal communication.

IN THE WORKPLACE 

Work occupies an important part of our daily lives, so we must nurture a caring and supportive work environment. Healthy and peaceful communication is undoubtedly one of the elements that can improve the well-being of employees. We want to offer workshops that provide an opportunity for reflection on the importance of communication, different manners of communicating, and implied ethical questions.
