Peacetech 101 is a practical introduction to innovation and technology for peacebuilders. The first of its kind, this 5-day training course covers innovation processes and technology tools that can be successfully used to build peace and prevent conflict. This emerging body of practice is often referred to as ‘peacetech’. Participants will emerge with a strong understanding of best practices in peacetech that will allow them to design and manage programs that introduce technology tools and innovation processes to their peacebuilding work.
The course is designed and delivered by Build Up, a social enterprise that amplifies citizen participation in peace through technology, arts, and research and hosted by BIPP HUB. The course will take place Monday to Friday in Barcelona, Spain in the unique setting of the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to leading international institutions.
The cost of the course is €2,000 + VAT and includes lunches, coffee breaks and a final participants’ dinner. The cost does not include other meals and participants are also responsible for their accommodation and travel arrangements. Early application is encouraged as enrolment is strictly limited to 20 participants. We do not currently offer scholarships for this course. Peacebuilders with limited resources and a particular peacetech initiative in mind may want to consider the Build Peace Fellows Program.
