You do not need guns or uniforms. The cell, laptop and camera are the most important tools in this mission of peace. Trolls, hackers, hate speech, ecodisasters, disinformation, cyberwar, lack of understanding and listening alongside with armed conflicts are the things in our time that destroy peace. Peace makers are needed everywhere – beside the war zone to tackle the dark forces of the internet.
If you are an energetic young talent full of ideas who wants to do good and leave a positive trace both to our planet and your neighborhood, you are the type of a person we are looking for.
Lennonit is a new peacemaking agency, which aim is to help the progress of a peacemaking by using all the modern tools available.
