Created by Dr. Craig Zelizer in 2007, The Peace and Collaborative Development Network (PCDN) is one of the leading online networks connecting the global social change community. PCDN is a rapidly growing social enterprise that gathers over 34,000 professionals, organizations and students engaged in development, peace, conflict resolution, gender, social entrepreneurship and related fields. We offer a one stop shop to inspire, connect, inform and provide the tools and resources to scale social change.

PCDN is attracting over 300,000 hits per month, with over 100,000 visitors from nearly every country in the world. Since its founding, PCDN has received over 4,000,000 visitors and almost 20,000,000 page views.

PCDN provides practical tools to advance social change, funding and career resources, peer networks opportunities and online and offline events.

PCDN has been a member of the leading dc based business incubator 1776 since August 2014.

The types of materials that can be posted to PCDN include fellowship/scholarship opportunities, information about relevant academic programs, training opportunities, news about new publications (policy and/or academic), questions about new or ongoing research projects, discussion of conflict regions, videos and photos, and more. Check out the Key Resource Guides for additional information.  Members can chat with each other, create blogs, add to discussion topics, and share current research, experiences and challenges from the social change field.
