Our vision is a world beyond war by 2030 and humanity united by a global system of peace with justice.
Our mission is to advance the global peace system by supporting, developing and collaborating with peacebuilding efforts in all sectors of society.
Nonviolence – We promote strategic and principled nonviolent solutions over any kind of armed conflict.
Empathy – We view social problems through the eyes of others and respectfully communicate with each other in the pursuit of mutual understanding.
Planetary loyalty – We consider ourselves global citizens, living in harmony with humanity and nature.
Moral imagination* – We strive for a moral perception of the world in that we: (1) imagine people in a web of relationships including their enemies; (2) foster the understanding of others as an opportunity rather than a threat; (3) pursue the creative process as the wellspring that feeds the building of peace; and (4) risk stepping into the unknown landscape beyond violence.
*This concept was developed by peace and conflict studies scholar and practitioner John Paul Lederach in his book "The Moral Imagination. The Art and Soul of Building Peace".
