What people say about Build Peace

Build Peace 2014 was the first conference specifically on peace and technology. We will be back in 2015. In the meantime, here is what participants have to say about Build Peace 2014.

"You managed to create the space for structured dialogue, but also the kind of interactions and sharing that you’ll never even know of, that happened between so many of those who attended." Sanjana Hattotuwa (ICT4Peace Foundation)
"It is a rare occasion that I end up in the same room as so many folks speaking the same language and I hope this is only the beginning of what is possible when we put our heads together." Emilie Reiser (Digital Democracy)
"The whole atmosphere felt like a band of collective tension eased across the attendees, and everyone I talked with was enthusiastic about being there." Jacob Lefton (Peace Jam)
"A very big congratulations and thank you for your efforts and the success of this much needed conference. While it created more needs than it addressed, it demonstrates how timely coordinated efforts towards strengthening the way we effectively use technology really is." Jerry McCann (Interpeace)
