At our annual summer Camp in the USA, we offer a rare opportunity for historic enemies to meet each other face-to-face. Here, the campers ('Seeds') confront their deep-seated fears and jointly tackle issues that fuel violence, hatred and oppression in their home countries.
There are now over 5,000 Graduate Seeds and Educators from 27 countries. Post-Camp, we build on their new-found understanding through arranging year-round activities including cross-border workshops, advanced dialogue sessions, and community service projects.
In October 2014, Seeds of Peace will launch GATHER, an ideas and actions summit bringing together Graduate Seeds, NGO leaders, social entrepreneurs, business people, philanthropists, and other global changemakers. During the event, individuals will engage in conversations focused around entrepreneurship, media and technology, and women’s empowerment.
We also will begin a grants and fellowship program to help accelerate any Seeds' projects that contribute to peace-building and social change in their home communities.
