2020 Decade of Peace Initiative

The Decade of Peace is officially HERE, and we are thrilled to be working with each of you to advance a global vision for a better, more "peaceable" world!

The 2019 International Congress was the official kickoff to MBBI’s 2020 Decade of Peace Initiative. This initiative will focus on building capacity and scaling the impact of conflict-transformation programs around the world. Our 2019 International Congress, attendees and Founding Members of the 2020 Decade of Peace Initiative, played an integral role in shaping this years’ priorities and agenda.

We missed having you there with us! But here's a few things you might like to look at...

While Congress is officially over, the real magic is just beginning! This is the year to work towards your vision of a better world. And we want to celebrate you, connect you, and equip you with the tools you need to make good things happen!
