Peacebuilding

Peacemaker Retreats

Working retreats bring together Peacemakers from all over the globe. The Peacemakers receive training both from one another and from international experts. They are also a chance for the Peacemakers to spend time with others who share their critical but dangerous vocation and re-charge themselves for the important work to come.

MADISON, NEW JERSEY (2011)

During the retreat, the Peacemakers focused on solidifying their relationships and forming a formal Network to support each other, share techniques and experiences, project their work beyond their immediate networks, and speak with a collective voice. Out of this effort, the Peacemakers in Action Network was born.

SARAJEVO, BOSNIA (2007)

Sixteen Peacemakers – all identified for their brave religious peacemaking work, came from across the globe, including such conflict zones as Colombia, Pakistan, and Nigeria. The group was also received by the Bosnian Presidency, who presented Tanenbaum’s 2006 and 2007 awards.

NEW YORK CITY (2005)
