UNDERLYING PRINCIPLES: Participatory Peace Building
At the Foundation for Global Collaboration and Peace, we believe that we, as human beings, must all own our responsibility for the world we live in. Peace is within us and Peace Building is what we all must do if we hope to achieve peace in our life time and sustain it throughout the ages.
No matter the condition of our individual lives at any given moment, we always have within us the choice to treat our fellow human beings with dignity and care.
And though despots may attempt to stir our fears, anger and hatred to usurp our negative emotions for their own gain, we are responsible to choose whether to follow in their footsteps or remain in our own.
With that in mind, let’s not leave the peace-building process in the hands of the selected and the few. Instead, let’s make our mark on the peace we so long to see by getting involved in this or the work of any peace-building organization in the world today.
