THE CONCEPT OF PEACE

CONCEPT OF PEACE OF THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR PEACE THROUGH TOURISM

IIPT’s concept of “Peace” from the start has been a positive concept that goes beyond the notion of simply the absence of war.

It embraces six dimensions:

  • Peace and tranquillity within ourselves
  • Peace with others, from our neighbours next door to our neighbours in the global village
  • Collaboration among nations
  • Peace with nature and our common home – planet earth
  • Peace with past generations – by which we honour our respective cultures, heritage and achievements of past generations
  • Peace with future generations – through sustainable lifestyles and practices and
  • Peace with our Creator – by practicing the universal principle of all faiths and humanists: do unto others as we would have them do unto ourselves

Bringing us full circle to “peace and tranquillity within ourselves”
