FREE FLOW OF INFORMATION
At CPNN, we are beginning to receive notices of free virtual events concerning the culture of peace. In order to inform our readership of these events, we will try an experiment: a “rolling article” about these events. We will try to update the listing every day or two, removing the events that are past (listed here) and adding new events as they are received at our contact email address. To be included here, an event must be free and must provide a registration link. Unless otherwise indicated the events are in English.
We will also include here the application deadlines for initiatives promoting the culture of peace.
Zoom is one of many new technologies available for virtual conferences.

Launch of manual “Peace Education meets Religion
Religious traditions can play an ambivalent role: in some settings they can foster violence or act as a powerful driver of conflict, while in others they can be a resource for peaceful actions in being a ‘connector’. Faith-based actors and institutions have a central role to play in harnessing religion’s potential for building peace and transforming conflict.
— Aiming to support the efforts of faith-based multipliers, the Berghof Foundation and partners developed and piloted the ‘Peace Education meets Religion: Manual for Multipliers’ over the past two years.
— The Berghof Foundation invites you to the manual’s virtual launch and an interactive workshop introducing some of the manual’s specific methods.
