Humanity invests vastly more time and resources in conflict than peace.

If we are to address the impacts of war, environmental crisis, and disease we must do the reverse – focus our time and resources on building peace and not conflict. 

This means we have to be investing ever greater time and resources in how to build cooperation, cohesion, and peace so that individuals, families, communities, organizations, and governments have the resilience and skills to be effective in navigating and thriving in our uncertain future.

Doing this means changing patterns of thought and action. We cannot build peace through conflict and violence. For peace to endure we must learn and think in new ways that support acting in new ways.
