From the introduction;

From the first Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Conference and Festival (GMP) at Conrad Grebel University College (Waterloo, 2016), we have learned how valuable it is to meet as Mennonites/Anabaptists to share our experiences, capacities and struggles with peacebuilding, our theology pertaining to peace, peace practices, understandings regarding `just peace´ in different contexts and to engage peace art expressions. “[P]rior to the conference there had been no gathering that brought together academics and practitioners to engage in dialogue and information-sharing on the theory, theology, and practice of Anabaptist/Mennonite peacebuilding around the world”, observed the GMP final report.

From this experience of creating a space for interaction of academics, church workers, practitioners, artists, among others, we have recognized the importance to provide some continuity. Therefore, we will host a Second Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Conference (2nd GMP) at “Mennorode”, Elspeet (The Netherlands), 27-30 June 2019.
