Peace and Cooperation is a non-governmental organization located in Madrid. The organization was founded in 1982, and since then the organization has had the goal to promote a movement of non-violence and creativity, with the aim to build a world of solidarity. The main priority of the organization is thus to build a peaceful planet. In order to achieve their goal, the main focus for Peace and Cooperation is human rights, solidarity actions, disarmament, development and global peace education.

The Peace and Cooperation School Award is an initiative to spread global awareness concerning various issues and themes with the aim to unite the world. The School Awards reaches out to youth and schools across the world enabling them to explore various issues and theme which inspires youth to use their creativity as a method for peace and cooperation.

Each year the organization presents various themes, for example past themes have been Sport as the Key to understanding in 2012, and Peace and Reconciliation: A Celebration of Friendship in 2011.

Commentaire le plus récent:

Yes, the arts do create a basis for a culture of peace.
The question I would raise is where are the visual artists who have produced a Guernica like painting of Felluja? Paintings last longer than photographs which are too often fleeting.
Do the poets against the war meet annually?
I caught a bit of an interesting tv show which featured world class artists such as Wole Soyinka speaking in Israel/Palestine about ways to further the peace movement there. Did anyone else see the entire show?
I hope a local Peace Day could emulate the UN opening ceremony .
