Peaceworks Sweden

PeaceWorks Sweden is a non-profit peace organisation run by youth, for youth. PeaceWorks offers you the chance to volunteer abroad and provides you with the tools you need to run a peace project of your own. Through PeaceWorks you can participate in your way, on your terms!

Our vision
PeaceWorks Sweden’s vision is a sustainable world in peace, where young people are active citizens and society is characterised by peace and sustainable development, global justice and solidarity, above and beyond national, cultural, social and economic borders.

Our strategy
PeaceWorks Sweden is a platform for young peoples’ involvement in and commitment to peace and sustainable development. By running volunteer exchanges and peace projects, meeting places and practical tools are created, providing the conditions for young people to participate in, effect and create understanding for local and global contexts, on their own terms.
