PeaceTech is an organization whose mission is to promote the use of technology and dialogue in building respect and understanding between groups of people. Through the use of technology to bring people from different groups together across large distances, they build bridges of understanding, reduce ignorance, and, ultimately, lessen conflict.
The 2010 Peace through Technology Training is a nationwide program for Filipino youth. This training program has already connected youth from Zamboanga City with Metro Manila, Iligan City with Metro Manila, and General Santos City with Metro Manila.
Watch the video below to see what the training program is all about.
The fourth batch will complete the program cycle and PeaceTech is selecting 20 youth leaders from Cotabato City and connect them with 20 youth leaders from Metro Manila for a training that would provide them with skills and theory in key areas of Peace and Technology.
