Women, Power, and Peace Awards: Call for Nominations
Our Women, Power, and Peace Awards are coming up on December 5th, and we need YOU, our readers and members of our community, to nominate candidates for two of the categories. (We’ve already announced the winners of some of the other awards – find out who’s being honored.) Nominations for the 2011 awards are now closed, and the winners have been announced. Thank you to everyone who submitted candidates!
COMMUNITY PEACEBUILDER AWARD
Peace doesn’t just happen and it isn’t simply what’s there when there is no war. Peace is built. At Peace X Peace we think that every well-intentioned person has something important to contribute to the process of building peace.
Our Community Peacebuilder Award honors a person over the age of 30 or an established organization that builds cultures of peace at a community level. This peacebuilder is responsible for initiating activities that promote a peaceful, just, equitable, and healthy community and inspire others to do the same. Her or his work has had tangible and lasting impact.
You may nominate an individual or organization, woman or man, young or old, professional or novice. They may reside anywhere in the world and be of any religious (or non-religious) background. The community where they build peace may be geographic, cultural, religious, or any other kind of community.
GENERATION PEACE AWARD
In an ever-changing world full of conflict, peace is hard to come by. As the current generation of peacebuilders keeps on pushing for peace, we here at Peace X Peace feel it is important to encourage and nurture the next generation of peacebuilders.
The Generation Peace Award is a brand new award to be given at this year’s Women, Power, and Peace event to a young person who is making a difference by advancing the cause of peace. This award will be given to someone between 18 and 30 who promotes and facilitates peacebuilding for a younger generation. This includes the use of social media, on-the-ground work, and other avenues to produce measurable impact.
You may nominate any individual, woman or man, professional or novice, as long as this person is under 30 years of age. They may reside anywhere in the world and be of any religious (or non-religious) background. The community where they build peace may be geographic, cultural, religious, or any other kind of community.
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Help us share a powerful example of peacebuilding with the world. And honor a person or organization in your life that gives you and others confidence that peace is possible.
Nominate the community peacebuilder or youth peacebuilder who inspires you most! The most important qualification for both awards is that this person or organization gives you and others confidence that peace is possible.
