The Founding Vision for Peace3WFWPI was officially inaugurated in 1992 with representatives from 70 nations. The mandate given to us at the time was very different than that of any other organization.
Each Founding Member was called to contribute their talents, mind, heart and creativity in a global mobilisation towards a Peaceful Culture that would involve changes in every field of life: politics, economy, culture and society.
