PeaceWomen Across the Globe

September 21st 2006

On the International Day of Peace, PeaceWomen Across the Globe is re-dedicating itself to the cause of a just peace.

Today the network is launching its Partnership campaign: "We are inviting community groups and especially youth to join us by becoming PeaceWomen Partners; to challenge the way people think about peace and peacebuilding, and to find and document the women peacebuilders in their communities", says Vermot. The network is searching for Partners to each identify and document women peacebuilders over the course of the next year, so that on next year's International Day of Peace, another 1000 women peacebuilders can be recognized. "This campaign will make visible the peace work of women, which have kept communities alive, which have created and protected lives in the face of extreme violence", says Co-Chair Kamla Bhasin from India.

"In today's highly interdependent world, individuals and nations can no longer resolve many of their problems by themselves. We need one another. We must therefore develop a sense of universal responsibility... It is our collective and individual responsibility to protect and nurture the global family, to support its weak members, and to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live."
The Dalai Lama
