Tech for Peace
Tech for Peace is a program to establish a peace network among youth and Govt / Non-Govt. actors to combat new age challenges that encourages youth to do violent activities.The project was operated by Preneur Lab with the support of Democracy International. The main goal of the project is to educate young people on CVE and leverage ICT to empower key stakeholders to prevent and counter violent extremism. We envision to empower the bright youth talents to create much needed digital solution which will enhance peace-building enabling the relevant groups of organization/stakeholders to take part in it.
We have completed 5 bootcamps and 5 hackdays in top 5 universities in Bangladesh. The universities are: Brac University, North South University, Dhaka University, BUET and United International University. From these universities, we have selected 3 best digital tools to counter violent extremism.
