Now in its sixth year, our Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards offer global recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict affected countries all over the world.
These are the global awards for local peacebuilders – inspiring individuals and groups who are building a better tomorrow in the world’s most fragile places.
In the last five years, over 1,000 entries have been received from nearly 100 countries. The prize winners have worked with ex-child soldiers in Uganda, used story-telling for peace in Nepal, combated climate-related conflicts in Burkina Faso, supported peace communities in Colombia, countered community violence in in Papua New Guinea, and more.
Three winning organisations will each receive $10,000 and online promotion of their work, plus 5 years’ free membership of the Alliance for Peacebuilding. A representative of each winner will also be invited to the awards ceremony at PeaceCon 2018 in Washington, DC.

There is also a photography prize that will recognise the photo that best illustrates local peacebuilding in action, or best communicates this theme.
