Building Peace at the Local Level

ICO brings communities together through sports, culture, arts, language and education. Our cross-community projects aim to transform the way communities interact. Communities are able to talk, build relationships, and unite through activities that share a common goal. We enable communities to work together to define how they envisage peace.

By encouraging positive communication, ICO builds confidence that peace is possible at the local level, supporting existing grassroots peace processes.
