Let's build a global culture of peace. Together.
Welcome to The Peace Building – our virtual museum and education centre dedicated entirely to peace. While we wait for the pandemic to clear the way for global citizens to explore this new London landmark in the making; we have developed a series of online events, creative inspiration, and a learning hub – providing a virtual space in which we can all be inspired to lead peaceful lives. Take a bit of time to wander around, explore and learn. There’s lots here to stimulate internal and external discourse on peace and conflict… and inspire new ideas about how you personally might begin to practice peace in your own way.
Building on the shoulders of the growing Peaceful Schools Movement, and the International Network of Museums of Peace, The Peace Building is set to be a beacon of hope for younger generations – providing the mental and emotional tools they’ll need to confront the challenges they collectively face – including existential challenges, like the climate crisis; as well as growing economic uncertainty, and the emergent impacts on their mental and emotional wellbeing.
At The Peace Building we promote a holistic and positive approach to peace – exploring how we can build inner peace; peaceful relationships; peaceful communities; and a peaceful world. Our exhibitions tackle difficult questions about conflict and peace – showcasing peace movements, peace activists and peaceful schools; and inspiring visitors with examples of successful peace building from around the world. Put simply, the Peace Building is a place where we begin to build a global culture of peace. Together.
