The World Peace Forum 2006 is an international gathering of individuals, groups and civic governments from cities and communities to envision a living culture of peace and sustainability in our lifetimes.

The Goal
The World Peace Forum 2006 will build networks of citizens and civic governments committed to a culture of peace and sustainability. As global militarism rises as an imminent threat to our cities and communities, these networks will play a major influence on their national governments to reduce military spending and promote peaceful solutions to conflicts in the world.

The Mission
The World Peace Forum is an open space to build consensus among civil society and civic governments to jointly accomplish a living culture of peace. We aim to raise awareness of militarism and their consequences, develop effective practices and models to reduce violence and encourage peaceful means to end conflict, achieve justice and reach sustainability in our communities. We do this by bringing together individuals, groups and civic governments to have an open and respectful dialogue during the World Peace Forum 2006.

Welcome to the World Peace Forum 2006! We invite you to join us in the journey to peace and to be part of this global change.
