The World’s World Peace Organizations

Today, many different organizations promote world peace in various ways. Most world peace organizations work in the area of research, education and/or advocacy. However, as elaborated below, some organizations take a different approach. For example, music proves to be a popular tool for supporting world peace. Musicians without Borders, Musician Peace Corps or Harmony for Peace Foundation all use music to create a better and more peaceful world. Apart from music, religions, international artists and leaders have also contributed to the rise of world peace organizations.

Religion & Spirituality

The Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as the “Quakers”, is one of the oldest movements advocating nonviolence and world peace. Starting in the 17th century in Great Britain, the group has expanded significantly and Quaker organizations can now be found in almost every part of the world. Over the years, Quakers have played an important role in the abolition of slavery, women’s rights and world peace.

The World Prayer Society approaches religion for peace from a different angle. The organization’s most illustrious activity is their yearly Flag Ceremony at the United Nations General Assembly. During the ceremony, each UN Member State is honored by raising its flag and offering it a prayer for peace. 

Artists & Famous People

Numerous famous actors and artists are participating in promotions and campaigns for world peace. One of the organizations linking international artists and bands such as Whoopi Goldberg, Dave Matthews, The Counting Crows and Nelly Furtado together is WP1 (World Peace One), a grassroots and institutional world movement that strives for unity, nonviolence and world peace. The organization is mainly famous for its global super concerts, “Performers for Peace.”

Apart from the many artists singing for world peace, various leading figures in the field of international relations have started their own peace organization or have inspired the creation of a new peace organization. For example, the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change is dedicated to the memory of Martin Luther King. Likewise, the M.K. Gandhi Institute is named after the legacy of nonviolent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi. Some world leaders even have more than one world peace organization. Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s work has led to the founding of at least four different peace organizations. The Tutu Foundation UK and the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation are based on Tutu’s teachings on peace and reconciliation. The Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies brings together academics who work on issues related to peace and conflict in order to strengthen the link between theory and practice. In addition, Desmond Tutu himself founded the Desmond Tutu Peace Centre, together with his wife Leah.


Some world peace organizations are more difficult to categorize. A small but fascinating category concerns organizations that view food as an essential ingredient for peace, this category will be explored further in a forthcoming essay.  For now, one example: The World Peace Diet stresses the importance of food and vegan values. According to the organization, a more enlightened and peaceful society can be achieved by structural changes in diet. Similarly, the Massage for Peace Company emphasizes how touch is essential to life and well-being, stating that “if everybody had a massage, there would be no war”.

    You are invited to attend a trial set for Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 9AM at the Lubbock County Courthouse, 904 Broadway, Lubbock, on the 4th Floor with Judge Judy Parker presiding.

    A civil trial, it is unusually compelling as a microcosm of our great ideological conflict in America in pitting a fundamentalist conservative trustee of an estate as defendant against the holder of the estate, his atheist liberal sister who has been denied all but 3% of her $30,000 inheritance from her mother by him for the last seven years.

    Ruth Calabria is representing herself at the trial after many failed efforts to find even one lawyer in the conservative bastion of Lubbock willing to represent her against her brother, Don Graf, a senior law partner in McClesky, Harriger, Brazill and Graf, the oldest and arguably most powerful law firm in West Texas. Her complaint against her brother is that he is using his power as trustee to withhold her inheritance in order to break her of her liberal attitude and bring her back to the conservative mindset she was raised in by their fundamentalist minister father. Indeed, her brother told her a week after the will was probated that she would never see a penny of it unless she left her evolutionary biologist political activist husband of 40 years.

    The details of the suit and of the family history of conservative versus liberal squabbles over the last 40 years are fascinating particularly with regard to how they’ll affect the outcome of the trial set to determine whether Don Graf will be removed as trustee for not acting in good faith as regards the welfare of Ruth Calabria who, in being deprived of her inheritance money, is currently living on food stamps and on the edge of homelessness at age 72.

    These and other details of the case are described in story form on our website,,which also includes a mathematical analysis of America’s bitter conservative-liberal divide.

    We informed Judge Parker a month ago that we would be inviting the media to attend and she raised no objection. It should be an interesting trial.

    Sincerely,Ruth Calabria 714 Ave. Q, Lubbock, TX 79401 (806)765-8847

    I wrote a sci- fi book whose characters seek world peace through evolution, not revolution.

    Species Survival by Ken Hollar

    Free download 04/06/2015- 04/10/2015 on KDP SELECT

    Science fiction novel exploring the last great frontier: the human mind.

    Hiding in plain sight while on the run they sustain a tide of kindness in an unkind world without making waves that would attract the men and “dogs” hunting them.

    Through extensive interviews the government has discovered that very young children have invisible friends that when parents ask to see them are always “in the other room.” These entities, peripheroids, have given children directions about world peace, an eventuality for which the military is not prepared. Desperate to save themselves they blame peripheroids for the alarming increase in autism: a condition, at its worst, where the child is “in another room” in his or her mind and can’t be reached by anyone, even their loving parents.

    As they grow almost all children forget these invisible friends. Only two humans are known to have talked to peripheroids after age two. Both have been watched every second of their lives. She knows this. He doesn’t.

    When she finds him he discovers that the recurrent dream that has haunted him is really a suppressed memory. Can she help him unlock that memory and the untapped powers of his mind and body fast enough to survive until they find the children they seek who are, literally, the key to long term species survival for mankind?

    In the 21st century in 2015;
    Please around the world, I suggest a command for the destruction of weapons and for world peace. Please! Now!
    Jesus said: “Everything you want to make people you do also do it.”

    The need to eliminate all weapons and war on this planet! Then we could start talk about peace and the quality of life on this planet, which is the only one for all of us. That is the solution, how to emerge from the global crisis. Everything else is wandering in the fog and prolonging the agony. We have to abolish the weaponry system.

    the first landmark in the world showcasing a transformative message of equality: Are you greater than the sun/ that shines on everyone: Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White/ the sun does not discriminate (c) 1985.

We hope you check it out and share it with your community. You can see a video of 100 children from the Plymouth public schools performing the song with the African Children’s Choir, just visit: Please share and enjoy!

    Every one present every where on earth want peace but most of us do not understand the root cause of not having it and work in opposite direction to achieve it. At Gurudham, World Peace Mission, we truely feel that Tantra with the help of its teachings has the capacity to create peace on Earth, and we want to do everything we can to help achieve it.
    Our life totally depends upon training given to us by our mom,surroundings, teachers at school and other establishments we work for and unknowingly they have put an element of fears in us which does not allow us to live in peace. Few examples are person fearing to fail is not at peace. Countries fear other countries and terrorist organisations will harm them and they want to eliminate them before hand to save themselves. Terrorist also fears and therefore fight to overcome fear.
    Tantra teachings start with no fear, no hatred and no shame and if it can be achieved by each one of us, we shall be able to achieve peace first in ourselves, then in surroundings, states, countries, continents, earth and universe. We have to start work with ourselves first and then request our governments, schools, colleges and other establishments to make their courses in such a way that fear is not taught to us knowingly or unknowingly. This will ultimately achieve peace every where in time to come. Guruji has taken a Mission to work for it all over the world and some of us has already started it in his great guidance and we invite every one of us to be part of it in order to make a difference on earth quickly.
    Our courses, seminars, meditations and programs provide profound, practical tools to help you to create peace in your experience both at work and at home and to take peace everywhere you go. peace begins to spread and ripple out into the world as more and more people live peace in this way,
