Peace and its many aspects

Peace Academy

This just came to my attention:  The National Peace Academy.

“The National Peace Academy supports, advances and nurtures cultures of peace by conducting research and facilitating learning toward the development of peace systems – local to global – and the development of the full spectrum of the peacebuilder – inner and outer, personal and professional. In all its operations, internal and external, the National Peace Academy strives to embody and reflect the principles and processes of peace….

Cornerstones of Peace Learning
The programs of the National Peace Academy comprise and address four interdependent, synthesizing, and catalytic cornerstones of peace learning and action:

Peace Education
Peace Research
Peace Practice
Peace Policy  …

A Value Added Approach
The National Peace Academy is a value added institution.  It complements, adds value to, and works synergistically and collaboratively through and with existing and emerging programs and institutions – at all levels of civil society, business, and government – towards nurturing a culture of peace, sustainability, and increased livelihood for all citizens, nationally and globally.”

Here is a .pdf telling much more about the NPA.
