THE STORY:

About The Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding

The Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding applies Outward Bound’s expertise in experiential education and its global capacity to the needs of individuals living in regions of conflict around the world.

More than 60 years ago, Outward Bound began as an educational methodology to inspire character development and leadership, helping individuals realize their human potential to become compassionate and courageous citizens. The organization has retained its roots in experiential education and has excelled in serving as a catalyst for transformational change in individuals and in groups through course offerings delivered on six continents to an estimated 200,000 people annually.

The Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding is committed to applying Outward Bound’s many strengths to the work of conflict prevention, management and mitigation and post-conflict reconciliation around the world. Working with the international network of Outward Bound schools located in more than 35 countries, the Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding has been established to develop and support programs that contribute to global conflict resolution, reconciliation, peace and security.

Programs Overview

Outward Bound programs are intensive experiences that, through carefully structured shared challenges and teambuilding exercises in new environments, allow participants to discover and develop qualities of leadership, compassion, trust, camaraderie and cooperation in themselves and in others.

Outward Bound Peacebuilding programs build on the traditional Outward Bound principles and methodology and are designed to enable diverse groups to build trust, establish constructive relationships and engage in meaningful dialogue. Outward Bound Peacebuilding programs are purposefully structured to create and accelerate processes of genuine communication and connection that may otherwise take years to establish or, absent of intervention, not occur at all.

Results

The anticipated result of an Outward Bound peacebuilding experience is a profoundly altered sense of self and the "other." The experience has the potential to shift the participant's world view, and in so doing, transform his or her perceptions of difference—difference of ideology, identity, religion, ethnicity, needs and values often at the root of violent conflict—from those which inspire fear, resentment and hatred to a new level of understanding that may be acknowledged, respected and managed in non-threatening ways.

The objective is to offer the transformative experience of an Outward Bound Peacebuilding program as a tool for peacebuilding. We believe our programs have the potential to profoundly influence individuals and communities and the ways in which they interact and approach the issues that divide them, creating the possibility for open communication, mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.

While Outward Bound peacebuilding programs do not aim to resolve a conflict or bring about instantaneous harmony between formerly hostile neighbors, we believe peacebuilding programs can have a positive impact on individuals and groups, and thereby, on entire societies affected by the threat or recovering from violent conflict.
