We are thrilled and honored to announce that Outward Bound Peacebuilding was awarded its full license from the Outward Bound International Board at the Outward Bound International (OBI) 2014 World Conference in Austria.

As a licensed member of OBI, Outward Bound Peacebuilding was recognized for its sustainable business plan, high level of safety in its programs, innovative methodology and commitment to bring forth the values of visionary and educator Kurt Hahn, who founded Outward Bound. With this full license Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding will be looking to expand its programming with partners around the world and to bring our mission, Challenging Emerging Leaders in Divided Societies to Build Peace, to a greater number of participants.

With the addition of OB Peacebuilding to the OBI network, Ana Patel became the fourth female Executive Director in the OBI community. Himalayan Outward Bound was also awarded a full license at the conference.

We would like to offer a sincere THANK YOU to our Board, international advisors, and community of friends and supporters around the world during this four-year process.
