Welcome to Peace Week 2023!
A peaceful and thriving world is one that is fundamentally free from all forms of oppression and domination. It is a world where humanity lives in right relationship with ourselves, with each other, with other species and with the entire natural world. It is a world in which all humans and animals have their core needs met without privilege or prejudice, so each can manifest their unique potential—in mutual enrichment with their communities and ecosystems.
The 99 Day Journey to Peace Week 2023, begins with World Unity Week at the end of June, and includes many stops along the way as we are holding a shared purpose of Peace through Unity towards a thriving world for all of Life.
