Virtual Peacebuilding Training

Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute 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 four courses for its Virtual Peacebuilding Training from March to May 2022. These courses will explore diverse themes on peacebuilding, environmental peace, arts and peacebuilding, and monitoring and evaluation. Applications are now open for these courses. Please note that the deadline for applications varies per course.

Registration is now closed for all courses for MPIs Virtual Peacebuilding Training Program for the March to May 2022 period. You may still find information here for these courses so you have an idea of what we offer. Check back for online courses that will be offered later in 2022.
