Local Peace Economy

Building movement towards a just, peace economy for all.

Every transaction we make in our daily lives ultimately contributes toward building a peace economy or a war economy, a world of compassion, justice and well being, or a world of indifference and violence. The peace economy model encourages us to reinvest in our local communities, in the people. It calls for creating cultural, social and economic models that cultivate a sense of respect and self-determination for all our communities. We cannot make these changes without the foundational building blocks of the very peace and justice we are seeking. The first step is realizing the impact that our daily behaviours, ideologies, actions have in local and global communities and change these in a way that reinvest in the people and the earth. Take the macro problem to the micro. Join us in divesting from the unjust, extractive war economy into building a just peace economy for all.
