As part of Global Partnerships Week, the Alliance for Peacebuilding hosted a roundtable discussion about working together on Goal 16 of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals: promoting just, peaceful, and inclusive societies. Over thirty people attended, including representatives of the State Department’s Office of Global Partnerships and Concordia, two of the hosts for Global Partnerships Week.

Attendees discussed strategies for reaching out to new partners in the pursuit of Goal 16: how to define objectives for partnership, how to perform outreach, how to reach across sectors, how to create shared value, and how to communicate results. Attendees discussed lessons learned in forming partnerships for peace in the past, and identified potential new avenues for forming coalitions for peace in the future.
