Who we are

Creators of Peace UK empowers women to be radical peace-builders, starting in their own lives and communities.  Peace is more than the absence of conflict: it involves the struggle for a world where everyone has food, shelter, opportunities and respect. We believe that ‘peace starts with me’ and that an individual can be a powerful agent for positive change in society once she has begun building peace in herself, her family and her community.

 

Creators of Peace UK aims to:

  • Prevent violence and despair by addressing the roots of conflict – the internal ones within us and the external ones around us.
  • Promote a change of heart and attitude as a primary tool of peace creation, raising awareness of the personal ethical pre-requisites for effective social action.
  • Build bridges of forgiveness and friendship across racial, religious and social divides.
  • Build just, caring and inclusive communities.
  • Value diversity, open to all women everywhere.
  • Seek constructive partnerships with men and the restoration of the respect and trust necessary for joint action, whilst remaining a women’s initiative.
  • Create a solidarity network for women engaged in peace building here in the UK and around the world.

Creators of Peace UK is part of Creators of Peace International, a programme of Initiatives of Change. Launched in 1991, Creators of Peace now operates globally through conferences, community building activities, workshops, and personal encounters.
