We believe it safe to say that most humans seeks peace. Peace is an overwhelming desire of the human condition, experts say. But attaining the peace begins within and then must be pushed forward in acts that bring peace to others.
When 13 Nobel Peace Prize laureates gathered, One Billion Acts of Peace began. The mission is to inspire 1 billion acts of peace by 2019.
From the Billion Acts website:
The "One Billion Acts of Peace" Campaign is an international global citizens' movement designed to tackle the most important problems facing our planet.
We started with a simple idea...
Everyone can make a difference.
And together, we are unstoppable.
We focus on 10 areas towards world peace
- Education and Community Development
