Help get peacebuilding in the dictionary
Together with peacebuilding organisations around the world, Conciliation Resources has joined a campaign to change this. We want to get the word ‘peacebuilding’ in to the Oxford English Dictionary, Harper Collins and Merriam Webster dictionaries.
We believe it is time to recognise the role and impact of peacebuilders who are working hard to prevent violence, and find creative paths to peace. We also think it’s vital that people have the language to understand the concept of peacebuilding.
Join the campaign!
If you’re on Twitter, tweet at the dictionaries to tell them you want to see peacebuilding included in their next edition. Just copy and paste the tweet below.
