Peace Direct: Meet Our CEO

Our CEO, Dylan Mathews, will be giving a short presentation about Peace Direct: Past Present and Future, and the impact of our work with local peacebuilders around the world, before opening the floor for a live Q&A.

Peace Direct is an international charity dedicated to supporting local people to stop war and build lasting peace in some of the world’s most fragile countries. We believe passionately in non-violence and the power of local action.

As an independent organisation funded by people like you, we can direct money and support to where it is most urgently needed.
