The International Peace Bureau is a big international coalition of likeminded organizations but we are only a very limited number of people working full time at the office. To organize conferences, plan actions and promote our message, we rely on volunteers.
We are happy to say that we have a group of very committed people who help us on a regular basis. If you are interested in supporting IPB’s activities, here are some options:
ORGANIZE AN EVENT
You could organize sponsored or benefit events, such as walks, concerts, exhibitions, auctions, or artistic events. The IPB organizes a series of events on the Global Day of Action on Military Spending taking place in April each year. GDAMS is an ideal opportunity for your organization to raise awareness on disarmament issues and promote IPB.
You could also put on a lecture or peace event in the name of IPB, charging a fee for participation. You could assist us in organizing conferences, seminars, and other events, ask your local library to order IPB publications and distribute IPB literature.
SIGN ON TO OUR APPEALS
The IPB publishes quite regularly appeals or open letters to decision-makers. If you want to help strengthen our voice, please endorse them and donate your signature.
Translate IPB materials into Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Arabic, and Russian. Translations into other languages are also welcome!
SHARE NEWS FROM YOUR COUNTRY
At IPB we always love to hear about news related to military spending, government budgets, research on local disarmament issues, progress in sustainable development etc. We are also very interested to learn about local peace initiatives. Please send your articles, pictures and studies to firstname.lastname@example.org
PASS ON CONTACTS
If you have contacts with trusts, benefactors, or companies, we would appreciate if you could pass them on. As well as with relevant research institutes and like-minded organizations.
COME TO AN IPB CONFERENCE
Join us at one of our conferences. They are ideal opportunities to meet peace activists from all over the world and share ideas for joint action. And it would be a pleasure for us to meet you in person!
Through all these ways, as well as through the internship program we outline here, we hope to build a World Without War.
