As we have been observing Genocide month in April, and under the current circumstances of the Russian-Ukraine war, this year we want to acknowledge all of those who are currently under attack and being persecuted for their identity. We continue to stand up against oppression, unnecessary hatred, and systematic violence.

Let's stay united for Ukraine in peace.

Today is Earth Day, which raises awareness about the urgency to protect our planet and all living species that inhabit it.

A safer and more sustainable environment is one of the main pillars of reconstruction and peace building. Tech is an incredible tool for addressing sustainability concerns and making better, more informed decisions.

For example, replacing plastic bottles with reusable bottles is an eco-friendly alternative. The Tap app helps you discover refill stations on the go, and their network consists of coffee shops and restaurants, drinking fountains and filtered water ATMs.

Another cool app is Oroeco, which helps individuals track their own carbon footprint. The app calculates your carbon value based on daily decisions including retail purchases, food choices, energy consumption and travel.

Let's work together for a greener, cleaner, healthier and safer planet!

Thank You to everyone who participated in our Road to Equal Justice event in Louisville.

Maryum Ali kicked everything off with a really moving keynote address, where she spoke about her life and growing up as Muhammad Ali's daughter. Some other highlights included discussions on everything from the protests in Louisville after Breonna Taylor was murdered to Black burnout and the impact of witnessing anti-Black police brutality through online videos.

There were also discussions around the "Trayvon Martin" generation - a generation of young people who have seen Black folks murdered online without any sense of justice. They asked what the "Breonna Taylor" generation will look like in 10 years and how we need to support young people today.

Overall, it was a great two days!

Today is World Health Day and this year's theme is 'Our Planet, Our Health.'

We at #PeaceTechLab believe that technology can be used for the good of our planet and for the betterment of communities. Some great examples of PeaceTech include companies such as AMP Robotics - whose pioneering AI platform, AMP Neuron™, applies computer vision to accurately recover recyclables, removing contamination and creating high-value raw material for resale into the global supply chain.

Companies like Pachama and NCX are applying machine learning to measure carbon captured in forests for carbon forest offsets.

Powerledger is another company using tech for good. They've developed a series of world-leading blockchain energy applications, such as its P2P energy trading application.

We welcome you to share other inspiring companies using tech for the betterment of our planet's health.

Peacetech Lab was founded to reduce violent conflict and scale peacebuilding efforts through the use of technology, media, and data.
As our President and CEO says, “For the first time in human history, people have the ability to send images, video, information, and money around the globe with a push of a button.”

Amidst the devastating events occurring in Ukraine, our mission to accelerate peacebuilding is more important than ever. Many organizations are coming together for Ukraine in the form of peacetech, and we believe we can scale our impact together.

Everyone has the Power of Peacetech.

We believe everyone has the power of peacetech so we leverage low-cost, easy-to-use tech and local partnerships to put the right tools in the hands of the people best positioned to make a difference: activists, peacebuilders, and NGOs in some of the most violent places on earth.

Our work takes many forms. From our headquarters in Washington D.C., we run a PeaceTech Accelerator for startups using technological innovation to do everything from connecting at-risk youth across Africa with jobs to warning civilians in Syria of incoming missile attacks. In places like India, Kenya, Iraq, Myanmar, Costa Rica, and Nigeria, our PeaceTech Exchanges offer training and affordable tech tools to peacebuilders in communities around the world. And on the data front, our research around issues like social media and hate speech serve to inform policymakers, data scientists, activists, and business leaders while also providing a foundation for predictive analytics and a proprietary platform for early warning of violence. We partnered with Drexel University to launch the U.S.’s first Master’s Degree in Peace Engineering to educate generation after generation on the power of peacetech.

🗣 We are pleased to present our special issue on countering hate and violent extremism in collaboration with Thought Partnerships. In light of the January 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and broader rise in armed extremist groups, the Peace Science Digest editorial team was compelled to better understand the drivers of radicalization and, importantly, the nonviolent approaches to supporting deradicalization and disengagement from violent extremism. We feature five analyses and the work of several organizations working in the field of countering hate and violent extremism, including PeaceTech Lab Beyond Conflict Protection Approaches and Moonshot.
