Mission: To build peace through culture and communication
Goal: To connect individuals and organizations across cultures, ethnic, religious, and national identities as well as public, private, and civil society with each other, and with the needed resources to create and facilitate ongoing and innovative efforts in the peacebuilding field.
Vision: Cross-cultural interactions are being fostered by technology, travel, and commerce at a rate unprecedented in all of human history. Not only ethnic, religious, and national cultures, but also public, private, and civil society cultures must reconcile with how they will converge. The choice is clear, cross-cultural interaction can start from a point of fear and hatred of the other or may begin with peaceful steps. Peacebuilding Connections will strive to create and help foster as many peaceful cross-cultural connections as possible.
Founding: Peacebuilding Connections was founded by Bob Schlehuber and has been in operation since 2011.
