World BEYOND War is a global nonviolent movement to end war and establish a just and sustainable peace. We aim to create awareness of popular support for ending war and to further develop that support. We work to advance the idea of not just preventing any particular war but abolishing the entire institution. We strive to replace a culture of war with one of peace in which nonviolent means of conflict resolution take the place of bloodshed.

  1. How can I get copy of the almanac and/or calendar? I really have desired a more complete listing of events, people, anniversaries, deaths, etc. like what this compendium represents. Thank you born producing and circulating it. I will gladly forward whatever it costs to have my own copy. David Connor

    1. Nebraskans for Peace puts out a calendar every year called Cat Lovers Against the Bomb. It sounds like exactly what your looking for.

  2. Are there plans to LIVE STREAM this 2 day event so everyone around the world may see it on the net? If there is no plan yet please consider it as the impact of this PEACE MOVEMENT would be many times greater!!!

  3. I would like to purchase several peace almanacs as holiday gifts, How do I do that, and can I purchase them and have them shipped to the recipients addresses
