Positive Engagements in Peacebuilding
In its 20th year, MPI is once again prepared to create a space where peacebuilders will meet in mind, heart, and spirit to keep abreast of the challenges that the issues of peace and justice present. MPI's 2019 Annual Peacebuilding Training: Positive Engagements in Peacebuilding will be held from May 13 – 31, 2019, at Mergrande Ocean Resort, Davao City, Philippines.
