Accelerating Impact

Seeds of Peace accelerates the impact and influence of our alumni and other changemakers who are taking action to transform conflict in and between their communities.

1. GATHER Convenings

Building a network of changemakers

Our alumni are having an impact far beyond their families, schools, and peers. As they gain influence in their societies—shaping policy and the media, starting companies and non-profits, and leading classrooms and civil society institutions—they are increasingly positioned to challenge the ideologies, policies, and practices that perpetuate conflict.

Our GATHER convenings create rare spaces for young leaders, rising professionals, educators, and a broader movement of allies to come together across sectors and lines of conflict, sparking the connections and ideas that can catalyze change.

GATHER Convenings
“GATHER was more than a conference, more than an opportunity to meet people: it was a step towards a movement based on shared interests towards a just and equal future.”

2. GATHER Fellowship

A targeted investment in conflict transformation

Seeds of Peace invests in alumni and other changemakers who have the greatest potential to effect social, political, and economic change in ways that can transform conflict and contribute to peace.

We offer fellowships for social entrepreneurs, civic leaders, educators, and artists whose work lies at the cusp of social change and conflict transformation. Each year, several dozen new Fellows receive small grants and technical assistance to accelerate their high-impact initiatives.
