Global Telesummit for Building Peace

What a great event...thought I'd share:

The dream of a peaceful world has been with us for millennia.
Are we the generation that will make that dream a reality?
In the years ahead, we have the opportunity to help wean the world of its addiction to violence by harnessing best practices, deepening our personal commitments, healing ancient wounds, building bridges between cultures, advancing the science of peace, and teaching our children to live peacefully. In fact, most of the “technologies” for creating peace at all levels of society are well advanced - we simply need to share them on a wider scale.

The broad trend of human evolution is to move beyond violence. Given the scale of global crises, we must accelerate that evolution and learn to live, collaborate, and create in a more harmonious way.

PeaceWeek will unite pioneers from around the world together for the largest virtual peace summit ever created, culminating with the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21st. It will be a celebration and exploration of everything that is working to foster peace, from the family level to whole nations.

Our featured pioneers are building the practices, structures, and systems that can help evolve human society. Individually, they are deeply inspiring. Taken as a whole, they offer a remarkable picture for how to help evolve our world, covering topics such as:

•Personal Peace Practices
•Healing Collective Wounds & Trauma
•The Economics of Peace
•Addressing Global Hotspots
•Social Justice
•Politics of Peace
•Science of Peace
•Media & Peace
However, even the most illustrious group of peace pioneers can only do so much. It is up to all of us to lead the way in our own lives, which is why we invite you to co-create with us, connect with others drawn to the Summit and build a global movement of peace pioneers. We’ll have a variety of ways that you can engage with each other.
