Peace Engineers School

The idea of such a programme emerged out of the critical need for peaceful settlement of conflicts and reconciliation in various spheres and at different levels of our society.

Many people in Ukraine lost their hope for peace and healthy development in the country. To limit the damage, this country needs more local experts dedicated to their profession, with powerful knowledge and skills in the field of peacebuilding, who are able to lead others by showing them the way to mutual understanding and sustainable peaceful development. We call such experts Peace Engineers.

We have put a lot of effort and resources to create the Environment which could produce such experts – future Peace Engineers. The main training programme "Peace Engineers" takes place in Kyiv city and lastsone calendar year. During the training days the participants and the trainers live together as an integrated community.
