The art of weaving words and imagination together to make a story is a tradition as ancient as humanity itself. We are co-writing a book aimed at providing practical guidelines and tools for peacebuilders, and are collecting peacebuilding stories to be included. We want to hear how people are responding to conflict and building safer communities, in their own words.
Stories are about what it means to be alive and human. They spark emotions and allow us to put into words our experiences.
Like human existence, stories can be painful, funny, terrifying, devastating, exciting, terrible, exhausting or beautiful. They help us understand the world, and ourselves, a little better.
