Virtual Peacebuilding Training

Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute Virtual Peacebuilding Training Program

2023 Virtual Peacebuilding Training Program

The Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute's Virtual Peacebuilding Training Program complements MPI’s in-person Annual Peacebuilding Training Program and extends MPI’s role as a resource to peacebuilders through digital technologies. Our virtual learning platform has been developed to enable MPI to widen its reach and deepen its impact on individuals and communities, enabling them to become empowered to continue building just and peaceful communities in Asia-Pacific and beyond.

MPI’s Virtual Peacebuilding Training Program offers both introductory and advanced or thematic courses. The high-quality and passionate facilitators, some who have had years of experience with the Annual Peacebuilding Training and others who are new to MPI, bring their knowledge and skills to these virtual courses. MPI utilizes new technologies and tools in both synchronous learning—the Zoom sessions with the facilitators and participants—and asynchronous learning in the Virtual Classrooms. Through this program, grassroots peacebuilders continue to hone their skills and build on their experience and knowledge in order to be of greater service to their organization and the communities in which they work.

MPI is offering two courses for its Virtual Peacebuilding Training from October to December 2023. These courses will explore themes on Digital Peacebuilding, and Digital Security. Applications are now open! Please note that the deadline for applications is October 6, 2023.

This online course will equip participants with the essential skills to navigate the digital landscape securely, safeguard their data and communications, and mitigate potential threats. The course will combine theoretical concepts, practical exercises, and case studies to foster a comprehensive understanding of digital security best practices for peacebuilders so that the participants may conduct their peacebuilding activities safely in an increasingly connected world.
