Building peace isn't magic, it's systemic.

The Positive Peace framework provides a proven and data-based platform for development and societal change. It is:

Underpinned by the 8 Pillars of Positive Peace

Derived from over 25,000 datasets

Endorsed by Governments and international NGOs

Holistic, delivering change across the whole of society

About building strengths, not focusing on deficiencies

Here's how it works.

Although itself peace is important, Positive Peace is statistically linked with other outcomes that include better performance on ecological sustainability, improved wellbeing, stronger GDP growth rates and better business performance. The non-political Positive Peace Academy provides the knowledge and a neutral baseline from which you create your own practical approach to societal change, whether home or business, community or nation.
