Peacebuilder's Toolbox: 52 Online Resources for Peace Work

Sometimes we are asked about the tools we use when engaging in peace work online. As academics, administrators, organizers, and networkers, we have tried and tested a variety of tools.

This first CSOP ebook reveals some of the tech tools we use. Peacebuilding cannot be done primarily by technology and yet technology greatly extends our ability to bring people together.

As current and former Co-Directors of the Canadian School of Peacebuilding (CSOP), over the last 8 years, we have been building an international network of engaged peacebuilders. We have seen it as our work to equip, to inspire and to challenge—and to be challenged and inspired by—these peacebuilders. One element in that work is the use of online tools. Over time we have found particular tools that serve us well in our peacebuilding work. It seems consistent with peacebuilding that we share our best tools in the hope that others might find them useful and use them to build peace in ways that we couldn’t even imagine. What is listed within these pages is our tried-and-tested toolkit for online peacebuilding.

Since the Canadian School of Peacebuilding (an Institute of Canadian Mennonite University) started in 2009, we have been building an online platform to serve engaged peacebuilders around the world. Here are 52 of the tools we wish someone had told us to use sooner. Each tool is the guide is hyperlinked to their website. This is only a sampler. Let us know if you have suggestions of what would be helpful to include in future editions of this toolkit (csop@cmu.ca).

This book is a gift. Please feel free to share it with others. It is our hope that this gift helps you to live and to be peace in the here and now. Blessings on the journey.
