Thank you for participating in the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2021 "Translate. Relate. Act"

At the first virtual FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2021 entitled “Translate – Relate – Act: Forging Partnerships for Sustainable Peace” over 400 peacebuilding actors from German and international civil society organisations and governmental institutions as well as academia joined the event. The FriEnt PBF 2021 offered space to reflect on the future of peacebuilding based on current global trends. It highlighted new ways of bringing partnerships into action, translating existing realities into policies and meaningful action, and expanding partnerships with related sectors and policy areas.


The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2021 "Translate - Relate - Act: Forging Partnerships for Sustainable Peace" combined interactive virtual sessions on key thematic issues hosted by the FriEnt members as well as national and international partner organisations on 27–29 April 2021 with high-level panels on the future of partnership and peacebuilding on 5–6 May 2021.
