Our vision is an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just world that works for all.

Our purpose is to focus on developing the Beyond War message in new forms to keep the principles and practices dynamic, alive, contemporary, relevant, and cross-cultural,

to empower people to educate themselves  about the options for resolving conflict that do not involve violence,

to create social change through meaningful and rewarding relationship building,

and to work for peace, peacefully.
