A Generational Commitment for a Better World
“It is not enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it is not enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
Definition of Peace
Peace is the ability to respect differences within our diverse global community, transcending the sovereignty of nations. Peace ensures human dignity and guarantees humanity is preserved for future generations. It is not just the absence of conflict, but also the prevalence of justice.
Peace is Possible Campaign
The purpose of the campaign is to mobilize young people worldwide to create awareness, advocate, take action and commit to an everlasting world peace.
JCI Norway has commited to support the campaign by building coalitions of like-minded stakeholders from all sectors of society that are committed to the purpose.
We believe that peace is only possible through the combined efforts of all members and all sectors of society.
It is important for all advocates of peace to realize that to achieve peace we must strategically address all barriers that exist within our local communities and countries and their root causes.
The Global Goals for Sustainable Development outline key targets for the world to end poverty, combat climate change and fight injustice and inequality.
The collective actions of communities worldwide to advance the Global Goals will bring us one step closer to making peace possible.
JCI Norway has committed to advocate and focus on the Sustainable Development Goals and to align our projects and activities in accordance.
