Peace Conversations Facilitation Program (PCF) is one of the key programs designed for the MBBI—Rotary partnership. Utilizing existing networks and resources to build conflict literacy and dialogue skills, Rotarians have become more effective peacebuilders within their own clubs, communities, and districts, and have become leaders in promoting positive peace at home and abroad.

Theory of Change
Technology and global migration are bringing people together at an ever-increasing rate- equally increasing the opportunity for conflict. The role of local communities has become paramount. There are Rotary clubs within communities currently experiencing such conflict and all communities are susceptible.
Peace starts from within. Rotarians with the skills to engage more meaningfully in difficult conversations within their own clubs can engage in dialogue within the larger communities they serve. Connected communities able to engage in consistent, meaningful dialogue are more resilient to division, social crisis, and violence. Conversation facilitation is a skill that can be taught and practiced by individuals from all levels of experience and backgrounds.
Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI) has been working globally to expand the capacity of community-based partners through mediation and dialogue for over a decade and has a network of trainers and practitioners throughout the world.
