At Vision of Humanity and the Institute for Economics & Peace we are dedicated to strengthening social systems – in community, in business, in society – building into long term, sustainable peace. We’ve been joined on the journey by a community of millions who believe in a world where everybody has an equal opportunity to thrive.
Harnessing the essence of Positive Peace is more than just envisioning a world without conflict; it’s about actively shaping our future through conscious actions. From fostering a transparent government and promoting ethical business practices, to championing the rights of all and ensuring equitable resource distribution, every step we take echoes across our communities – and the world at large. As we immerse ourselves in these actions, we don’t merely dream of a harmonious tomorrow — we create it. So let’s roll up our sleeves and embark on this transformative journey of Positive Peace.
Today on Peace Day, you can take your first steps into contributing to a more peaceful and equitable society – here are some suggestions to get you started, but feel free to come up with your own ideas and strategies.
