Join the global movement for a culture of peace.
There is so much going on for a better world all around us that the mainstream media never shares. Many different movements for social change are beginning to converge into what UNESCO has described as "a global movement for a culture of peace." The Culture of Peace Initiative (formerly the "We The Peoples" Initiative) is a United Nations-designated Peace Messenger Initiative, coordinated by Pathways To Peace, that is helping to connect organizations and individuals to build a culture of peace. Participation is free. Please visit
