GATHER Fellowship logo


Institutions and policy makers alone do not have the necessary resources to build sustainable peace and reach UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Social innovators are stepping up to the challenge. Applying their entrepreneurial minds to peace-building, they are developing businesses and solutions that address the core causes of conflict at a community level. Through their initiatives, they break down harmful stereotypes, bring individuals together across lines of conflict and build resilient communities to form a solid foundation for sustainable peace.

At this event you’ll hear from them, top talent selected to the GATHER Fellowship programme. They’ll present their work at Norrsken House to create a forum for discussion and provide the audience with an opportunity to challenge perceptions.
