IG’s Peace Blog

Peace and its many aspects

Ipeace

I’ve been receiving information about Ipeace for sometime, and finally checked it out (in fact, it looks like I’ve become a member–it’s not a complicated process 🙂 ).   It is a peace community site, where members can interact, have a blog, send messages to each other, post photos, etc…  However, it has important goals, and has already organized some interesting projects.

Their “about” page is actually something they wrote for Google’s “Project 10 to the 100th” and is a nice read.  Here are a few (hopefully) informative passages:

“What one sentence best describes your idea?

Like carbon atoms connected to form a diamond, iPeace connects individuals through the web to form the strongest force of peace, which will unite, cooperate, and share with others to remove the spectrum of obstacles to peace.

Describe your idea in more depth.

Imagine a living organism made of people, regardless of their nationality, sex, religion, race or politics; imagine millions contributing and sharing freely their energy, talent, creativity and love; imagine an organism that keeps pouring money into initiatives, projects and causes that its members believe can help bring about peace; imagine an organism that can save lives:  this organism is iPeace.

iPeace is a hub for serious peace initiatives, a platform that actively supports, advertises, promotes and aids in financing them. It offers a forum where its community debates, discusses and educates each other on what projects to support.”

“The iPeace ideas highlight issues and topics surrounding peace in the widest meaning of the word. Whether it is the conflict in the Middle East, confrontations in Africa, human trafficking driven by poverty, crimes of hate spawns of prejudice, etc., it addresses issues like hatred, our shrinking freedoms, and violence. iPeace views reducing fear as its biggest challenge.”

They even made a little video for their Google presentation.

Here is the Ipeace poster:

Also, note the music player on the homepage.  Nice touch.  I’m currently listening to Moby “We are all made of Stars” (and we are you know, really…think about it)

PS.  Usual caveat applies:  I am informing and not necessarily endorsing.
