A free educational resource for You: To find peace within yourself & to create peace within your family, community and world.
The World Peace Library is designed to inspire, inform and involve people by highlighting best practices from around the world. It has over 300 audio recordings with inspirational stories, skills training and powerful solutions by the world’s top peacebuilders, social change leaders, scientists, Indigenous elders and spiritual mentors.
The World Peace Library organically grew out of our experience producing online peace summits — Peace Week (2010–11), Youth Rising for Peace (2012) and Summer of Peace (2012–ongoing.) From this “bird’s eye” view, we could see there was a much bigger narrative of peace emerging than anyone had ever imagined!
This bigger story of peace gives us all hope as people are finding solutions to the most challenging problems on the planet. The new story of peace is springing forth from the hearts, minds and souls of people of all races and religions as we each help to make the world a better place, starting right where we are with the people closest to us.
It is The Shift Network’s intention to accelerate this new narrative of peace and to advance the United Nations’ efforts of promoting a culture of peace. We encourage you to share the World Peace Library far and wide. Please “like” the World Peace Library Facebook Page and share your experience of using the Library to promote peace in your family, schools and community so we all can learn from you.
