International Peaceful Act Prize
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE
It takes courage to make peace, much more than to make war (*).
Rather than an individual action,
a Peaceful Act is a process which has favoured, triggered and created small or large peace actions, meaning the ability to prevent or settle situations of conflict between two or more people, two or more groups, two or more nations and two or more religions in any part of the world, in a geographical area of any size.
‘Peaceful Acts’ can be put forward for consideration on the peacefulact.org platform from 12 July to 30 September
An international jury will award the prize to the three best projects in a ceremony to be held in Milan and on-line in November 2021
The suburbs of the whole world, and even more so the European ones, have two aspects - they’re both the place for the generation of a cultural springtime or nothing less than an agglomeration forgotten by the 'centres' of power and, therefore, a place where problems can be hidden with, evidently, the delusion of being able to get away with it.
The International Peaceful Act Prize GIVE PEACE A CHANCE aims to retrace and valorise all those peace projects that have generated virtuous processes in the suburbs of the world to tear down walls and sustain reconciliation paths, overcoming racial or religious opposition, promoting integration and, in the end, setting up social regeneration.
The challenge is twofold - collect the story and documentation on these processes by ordinary citizens who thus decide to become peace ambassadors-evangelists, and also highlight them and, as far as possible, set them up as models.
A panel of people considered just will award prizes to three projects which comply fully with the rules of the Prize in a week of special events to be held in Milan next September.
