Alberto Gomes - Global DEEP Network
ThoughtBox is delighted to be a member of the DEEP network, collaborating on educational projects with schools and young change makers, working together to foster peaceful, active and critical engagement with societal issues of today. The ethos and focus of the work of DEEP aligns well with those of ThoughtBox, and the two organisations are working together to develop supportive educational models and opportunities for positive change.
The Dialogue, Empathic Engagement & Peacebuilding (DEEP) Network is a global community of peace workers and researchers from diverse cultural backgrounds dedicated and committed to building a peaceful world and fostering social and ecological regeneration. Working collaboratively with local communities, our projects and activities focus on promoting diversity and intercultural understanding, bridging divides, fostering empathy, empowering marginalized voices and communities, transforming conflict before it escalates into protracted violence, and facilitating policy innovation.
Through established nodes (local action groups) operating in a wide range of countries and regions around the world, we organize intercultural dialogue, elicitive conflict transformation, and peace building projects in partnership with marginalized communities, undertake research that enhances understanding of conflict and peace practices and leads to innovative policies and programs, conduct training and education geared towards capacity building for individuals, organizations and communities in dialogue, conflict transformation, and peace work, network with other organizations to continually add depth and breadth to our understanding and activism, and build global initiatives for peace and sustainability.
