Thank you very much for showing an interest in helping to build peace.
First, if you have not reviewed our web site at http://www.peace.ca
it contains a lot of relevant information.
We do need a lot of help. There is a lot to be done, and a lot of opportunity
to tailor what a person can do to their personal and professional interests and
backgrounds. The way I like to put it is "Here is the status and needs as we
see it (i.e. see www.peace.ca ), what would you like to
do and how can we support you?" You might wish to do something independently,
or in conjunction with our activities.
Here are some of my priorities at this time: 1. continue to build www.peace.ca to be the
pre-eminent virtual Centre for
Teaching Peace in the world (eventually bricks and mortar sites as well); 2. promotion of
the UNESCO Culture of Peace Program, COP2000 the United Nations International
Decade for a
Culture of Peace, a National Culture of Peace Program for Canada and unification of peace
groups; 3 developing a sustainable flow of revenues to fund worthwhile peace activities
(including the marketing of peacebuilding); 4. television media program(s) using existing
infrastructure. Possibly some of this interests you.
This gives you a quick idea. Please review the specifically identified needs below.
Tell me what you think at stewartr [at] peace.ca
and I would be pleased to try to support you
An Inventory of Peace Things To Do
- a comprehensive list of things that we need to do to start to build a
Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.
We need help to create a Canadian Peace Education Foundation to help
provide much needed financial resources for peace education programs at home
and abroad. If you have read the pages of this web site, then you know the
importance of peace education to building 'A World Fit For Children'.
Our immediate priorities are sponsorship of Annual
Peace Education Conferences, creation of Distance Peace Education
Programs, Training for Trainers, and Peace Resource Libraries ... to name a
few. Put bluntly, we need sponsors, fund raisers and money to do what
needs to be done. If you are able to help, and want to feel good about
making a contribution to peace building, please contact Bob Stewart at
or stewartr [at] peace.ca
