25 years building peace worldwide
December 21, 2018
In 2019, Interpeace will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary. We are proud of the work that has been carried out in the past twenty-five years, along side our partner organizations around the world. Fostering local ownership, mutual understanding and inclusive dialogue to build trust, have been the cornerstone of our peacebuilding principles.
The foundation of Interpeace was built around the notion that ‘peace must be built from within societies’. In this regard, Interpeace contributed to further anchoring ‘local ownership’ into peacebuilding methods by ensuring local people can drive their own peacebuilding processes.
Working with people in conflict-affected regions of the world, has enabled us to develop and implement sustainable, innovative and cutting-edge solutions to prevent violence and transform conflict. Working in over 20 countries around the world in the past 25 years has provided Interpeace with the knowledge and tools to continue supporting peacebuilding processes in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America.
On the eve of our 25th Anniversary in 2019, we look forward to engaging with all those who made this endeavor possible for moments of celebrations but also reflections about what it takes to build sustainable peace nowadays. To mark this year, we are happy to share with you our evolved institutional logo, a key part of Interpeace’s renewed visual identity, which will be implemented in January 2019. This updated logo reflects the organization’s renewed objectives for the coming years and the international organization’s status granted by the Swiss Government at the beginning of 2018.
Our best wishes to our colleagues, partners and friends on this new year!
