CultureOfPeace.org

Throughout history, there have been many social movements for change - for democracy, for the abolition of slavery, women's rights, for peace, for the environment. Many advancements have been made, but each of these causes is just part of a larger wish for a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. These diverse movements for thousands of different causes are beginning to converge and a more holistic movement --what UNESCO has described as a 'global movement for a culture of peace' -- is beginning to emerge. The Culture of Peace Movement is helping to unite the strengths of existing organizations and individuals so that creating a culture of peace really is now possible.
