Peacebuilding is an invaluable method for promoting urban sustainability and justice that contributes to understanding the root causes of problems at the micro level and finding solutions. An important intervention for preventing violence, it works with inclusiveness to help enable emergence of a common understanding in three main ways:

First, it can support inclusive processes of just urban transition that respect diversity of cultural backgrounds and ethnicity.

Second, it can promote more environmentally friendly behaviour and attitudes among participants.

Third, it can convey new meanings of “collective struggle for a common future” in different languages, cultures and sacred places.
