Q: What is a Community and how can I create one?

A: A community is your own virtual workspace. Every registered user of the Peace Portal can create unlimited Communities for free. Communities can be used to connect with other practitioners (for example, using the Forum application), or can be used to upload and share documents, publications, projects, pictures, or blogs. Communities are open, and other users can join and participate. If you wish to create bigger communities with special features, like private pages only available to members, you can contact us to help you create a Custom Community.
