Peacemaker 360
 
Peacemaker 360 is a social media campaign that profiles and shares stories of peace activists from around the world with a threefold vision: Inspire, connect, and amplify global peace activism efforts of ordinary citizens. ˧

In the summer of 2015, Christian Cito Cirhigiri, founder of the Peacemaker 360 Campaign, researched the role of student movements in promoting ethnic reconciliation in Sri Lanka, Burundi and eastern Congo between 1996 to 2016. One important finding of this research was the starck lack of visibility in both social and mainstream media of positive stories of how ordinary citizens, both men and women, are transforming conflicts in these countries. Christian started asking how can we celebrate activists from different parts of the world and create a dynamic community where they connect through storytelling, learn from one another’s activism experiences and build strong synergies for peace? That is how the peacemaker 360 campaign started and continues to be an important bridge connecting thousands of activists all around the world. ˧
