What we’re about
“Connecting People and Cultures around the Globe” The vision of People to People International is that a network of culturally knowledgeable global citizens will be an active force in creating and sustaining a more peaceful world.
Believing that it is through connecting people across borders and cultures that we build the relationships that create understanding, the mission of People to People International is to offer multinational experiences that foster cross cultural learning, develop global leadership skills, and connect with an international network of people committed to making a positive difference in the world.
Because in an increasingly interconnected world, success in making a positive difference will come to those best prepared to work and lead across borders and divides, People to People International provides innovative ways for people to experience, learn, lead, and connect.
A framework for Action
The purpose of the PTPI Hub is to provide a physical space where our members can work, rest and play. It is a space where we can share, learn and create together, and give to each other directly, without the extra hassle of intermediaries. The PTPI Hub, designs, manages and facilitates networks and partnerships which cultivate community-driven, multi-stakeholder projects that allow everyone to play a role and contribute to a stronger society in Belgium.
In an age of interdependence, we strive to ensure that our social and business partners find our Hub a respectable space, to anchor and showcase initiatives that highlight the role strong communities do deliver. When communities are strong, inequalities and sources of conflict are reduced, and constraints are removed to solution-finding.

About Mary Attridge-Jones
Mary grew up on a farm in a rural fishing village in Ireland. She hated shoes.
She loves dogs and all animals and worked as a nurse for 30 plus years. She developed a love for working holistically while in Hospice Care and a further appreciation of what can be, Quality of Life and how to develop Resilience while delivering Specialist Palliative Care, in the community.
Previously she has been a yoga teacher, a reflexologist and a preschool assistant. She has been married for 25 years. Along with her daughter and dog, Emily aged 14, she has been navigating life in Dublin.
She practises being outdoors with family, walking in nature, sea swimming for relaxation and is sleep dependent.
