Business Plan for Peace has ambitious long-term aims that challenge the status quo. These are based on solid evidence and recognition of both what is possible and of the urgency to change how humanity operates within our fragile world.
We envision a global shift in culture away from destructive conflict, towards a manifest commitment to build sustainable peace throughout the world.
To generate a groundswell of people from all sectors who believe that a world without destructive conflict is possible and necessary and who consequently are actively engaged, through inner growth and outer action, in hastening this change. We consider Business Plan for Peace as a catalyst for peace.
Since “the future belongs to those that can see it”, we demonstrate how a world without destructive conflict can be built and we turn vision into action, knowing the future is now. We are committed to the irrefutable reality that destructive conflict is neither necessary nor inevitable.
From experience we have learned that inner work and self-knowledge are essential to make a profound contribution toward peace. Our individual and team reflective practices are where we find wisdom and nourishment for effective work.
We know that work is most effective when diversity is embraced and collaboration modelled. We work to re-balance right and left brain intelligence, in order to prevent and resolve destructive conflict.
Power & Presence
We engage consistently with the realities of political power and military might, bringing the skills of awareness to have courageous conversations when necessary. We find our power through practising being fully present with empathy, because it enables greater authenticity and constructive progress.
Light & Resourceful
We remain light and agile, mindful of our precious resources. We facilitate connection and collaboration and catalyse change. We work in partnership with people across the globe challenging traditional power structures and reimagining failing systems.
Local support, global vision
We seek opportunities to transform conflict at home as well as abroad, partnering with like-minded people and collaborators from the UK and across the globe to support a locally led, human centered model of change.
“It’s in practising being fully present that we realise our power.”
