Global Peace is a civil society initiative.
It is an ecosystem for ideas, innovators, influencers, investors and implementers to harness twenty-first century creativity and innovation to bring practical, implementable and cost-effective solutions to global challenges that have local and global consequences – as well as enhancing conflict prevention and strengthening the global multi-lateral system.
- Build cooperation, tolerance and shared values;
- Build inclusive economic growth;
- Preserve the environment; and
- Share knowledge for human progress.
- Conduct 100 IGDs in 100 Cities.
- Host the Global Peace Conference, where we will present our Global Peace Charter based on the analysis and findings of the IGDs in order to make local governments aware of the development concerns of their constituencies and inform policies that will promote the inclusion of youth in positive contributions to peacebuilding efforts.
- Conduct Development Projects, to promote the inclusion of youth in social and economic development through growing local economies and connecting them with employment opportunities.
Our analysis and impact is within the framework of the SDGs. We recognise the need to feed into the broader global approach to development, so we’ve partnered with the SDG Action Campaign to assure that the goals are sufficiently integrated into all of our activities. We also implement the SDG MYWorld Survey collecting public consensus about the SDGs.
Participating in an IGD enables all those who have an influence within your city and country to engage in a productive dialogue surrounding current global issues and developmental challenges impacting the city and the world, and issues that pertain to the future. By hosting local youth ambassadors and student leaders, government representatives, academics, business leaders, traditional leaders, organisations with a strong and upcoming social footprint in your society, local and international media and the civil society sector – IGDs are able to link diverse members of an entire city/country to work together towards creating a better world, and to take those aspirations further by contributing to the Global Peace Charter and proposing tangible solutions to the global challenges faced by the international community.
After every IGD, it is necessary to capture the analytics of the event such as how many people attended, the geography, gender and age of the attendees, and most importantly to capture the outcomes and findings of the discussions.
REPORTING: Every IGD must be documented.
MULTI-MEDIA: Photos, video and audio content must be shared with the Global Peace secretariat to be uploaded onto the Global Peace website and YouTube channel.
SOCIAL MEDIA: The dialogues must be promoted on all social media platforms.
SDG MY WORLD SURVEY: MY World is a global citizen survey to bring people’s voices into official debates about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Almost 10 million people from 194 countries voted in the first MY World survey to help define the global goals. After the goals were adopted, the MY World 2030 survey was launched to make sure every person can have their say on SDG achievement.
