We are One Billion world citizens joining together supporting the creation of Peace Departments. PeaceNow is using the Internet to connect the people from every country in a grass roots co-creation of peace. We are not affiliated with any religion, political organization, or ideology. Our vision is one of unity and practical solutions for creating peace. Peace Economies – Peace Departments – Peace Practitioners
Peace Departments should be established in every government. Our One Billion Signatures for Peace will create the support and political resolve needed for all governments to finally establish permanent infrastructures for building sustained peace. Our petition for the creation of peace departments has been approved by culture of peace working groups at the United Nations.
Peace Economies must be created to offer jobs and profits as we replace conflict economies. An example of proposed project would be the electrification of the world where 1.2 billion people still live without electricity. Think of the power plants, hydro- electric dams, wire manufacturing, composite utility poles all generating jobs and profits while bringing needed services to those most in need.
Our symposium – “Peace As An Economic Engine” will bring together economists, entrepreneurs, & visionaries that have the new economy ideas to stimulate business participation. These successful companies will be the examples of how to conduct business profitably with a corporate heart.
Peace Business Certifications will recognize and reward businesses that align their operations and strategies with universally respected principles in the areas of human rights, labor, community, environment, anti-corruption and peace. Ultimately, the world’s citizens can invest in peace with every purchase they make and co-create lasting peace by supporting Certified Peace Businesses and the new peace economy.
Peace Practitioners education provides helpful instruction on methods to cultivate peace within our hearts, homes and communities. Our curriculum is strategically divided into Inner Peace, Family Peace and Community Peace. Each component has approximately 25 hours of instruction from the world’s best teachers that will give Peace Practitioners fresh ways to think and then apply the ideas for creating peace.
PeaceNow welcomes volunteers to offer their unique talents to do what has never been done before – co-create world peace. We are grateful for the blessing of your time, energy, and talents.
