I am convinced that this is a key question for the peace movement, because it concerns the consciousness of people.  Consciousness is key for tipping the balance at key moments of radical change in history, and increasingly in our times the consciousness of people is determined by what they see and read in the mass media.

This was also the conclusion of many organizations in their remarks for the Civil Society Report to the UN at the midpoint of the culture of peace decade.

There is an interesting bright spot,  however.  The conferences on tourism for a culture of peace that are organized by the International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) have gotten good press in the countries where the conferences are held.  The reason is simple.  Tourism is big business in these countries and the IIPT can get the top political personalities to give speeches, which also brings good press coverage.

I think there are important lessons here for the peace movement.  We need to link peace to business and through business to the government and media.  Tourism for a culture of peace is an excellent example, but others may be possible possible as well, for example, sports and entertainment.
