Negative Peace
Positive Peace

Humanity is nearing a tipping point and facing challenges unparalleled in its short history.

Global in nature, such as climate change, ever decreasing biodiversity, depletion of the earth’s freshwater, and overpopulation.

Such global challenges call for global solutions and require cooperation on a scale unprecedented in human history. Peace is the prerequisite for the survival of humanity in the 21st century.

Without peace, it will not be possible to achieve the levels of trust, cooperation and inclusiveness necessary to solve these challenges, let alone empower international institutions and organisations necessary to address them.

In the past, peace may have been the domain of the altruistic; but in the current interconnected and highly mobile global society it is clearly in everyone’s self-interest.
