UPA sessions started in 2003 with the Campus in Ziguinchor/Senegal. Since then UPA continues to gather African Peace Builders every year in different countries all throughout the continent.
There is an autonomous plateforme created and facilitated by UPA Laureates: the Panafrican Union of Peace Builders (UBAPB). Plateforme meetings take place by regional initiative: 2012 (Goma/DRCongo), 2017 (Ouagadougou/Burkina Faso).
Further more UPA Laureates launche an ambitious project: PUFA - Peace University FROM Africa (Université de Paix à partir de l'Afrique). Senior, well experienced AFRICAN Peace Builders suggest to visit local initiatives and communities IN EUROPE and offering training in UPA modules. We invite African diaspora and every other local or instutional initiative seaking desescalation, mangement of (social) conflicts, violence prevention and protect or strengthen social coherance.
More than 220 Peace Builders from 30 countries have already be trained and strengthend through the annual UPA Campus: a siginificant and dynamic contribution to permanent Peace building in Africa; and an active input into the social environment of these women and men of Peace.
