Peace Building

  1. 1. FOR A WORLD AT PEACE
  2. 2. A place where we can build a global culture of peace. Together.
  3. 3. “What is the use of war? It brings destruction, more suffering, and pain. I believe that humans have common sense and that our basic human nature is more compassionate.” The Dalai Lama
  4. 4. Our vision is a world at peace. Our mission is to bolster public education and awareness of all aspects of peace and peace movements (past and present); through the establishment of a peace museum and education centre in London.
  5. 5. A history of building peace Peace Building For a world at peace 05
  6. 6. “I believe that we are all damaged by the violence in the world. John Lennon imagined a better future. The Peace Building will help us build that future. Together.” Anna Lubelska, initiator and Chair of Trustees of The Peace Building Anna Lubelska, initiator of The Peace Building project and Chair of Trustees, is motivated by the horrendous wartime experiences of her Polish family. Touched very personally by the devastation of war; she has been an active international peace builder and advocate for all her adult life. Awarded the Medal of Gratitude by the European Solidarity Centre for her work on building and securing freedoms in Poland; Anna is the Founder of the global Peaceful Schools Movement – helping schools to create peace within and beyond the student community. Her book, ‘How to be a Peaceful School’, was published in 2018, and she now presents awards to participating schools; celebrating projects that effectively promote peace – both conceptually and practically. Her next step in the journey towards a peaceful world will be the establishment of The Peace Building in London. A global center of excellence in peace education.

  7. 7. Why we need this NOW Peace Building For a world at peace 07
  8. 8. Peace Building For a world at peace 08 Because conflict costs too much. Everyone is adversely affected by violence of any kind. From the economic impacts to the psychological scars for vast populations; war delivers no benefit for the masses. Over 100 million people have died in the conflicts of the last century. And this century has already seen 65 million people around the world displaced by conflict. Total global military spending in 2019 reached an all time high of £1,555 billion. That’s enough to provide education for all children in the world for three generations. Every £1 spent on conflict prevention saves over £4.1 for the international community (UN and World Bank). There are eight war museums in London. We need a peace museum to provide an alternative discourse, and champion the power of peace building.
  9. 9. Strategic objectives Peace Building For a world at peace 09
  10. 10. Our goals and objectives 1. By 2030 we will have a world class Peace Museum and Education Centre in London; 2. Visitor numbers will be comparable to other top London attractions (with up to 100,000 visitors a year); 3. Our in-reach and outreach school programmes will be better recognised for their innovation and effectiveness; 4. Peace will become more attractive than war – with the grim realities of violence emphasised, and the path to peaceful resolution expounded; 5. The centre will have a major impact on the reduction of bullying, domestic and street violence, as well as other forms of conflict. And, ultimately, it will deliver a future generation of peace builders; equipped to transform our world. Peace Building For a world at peace 10
  11. 11.
