World BEYOND War Receives Award for its work Educating for the Abolition of War

On May 15, World BEYOND War Education Director Tony Jenkins received the Educators’ Challenge Award from the Global Challenges Foundation in partnership with the London School of Economics (LES) Institute of Global Affairs. An awards ceremony was held in London at LES where Tony presented on our educational work to abolish all war. You can watch a video of his presentation and learn more here:

Tony was among 10 finalists each of whom received $5,000 awards. Tony also received the coveted $1,000 People’s Choice Award as a result of public support of the promotional video of our entry. Tony submitted our book, “A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (AGSS)” as an educational blueprint for ending all war through the development of a cooperative, nonviolent system of global governance.

The 2018-19 edition of A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (AGSS) is now available as an audio book! The book is professionally narrated by Tim Pluta, a World BEYOND War supporter & volunteer, and produced by TuTu Studios. You can listen to a free audio sample from the book on our website and purchase your own copy for a small $5 donation.  The book will also soon be available on premium prescription services including audible.com, amazon, and iTunes.

What the United States did to Iraq must not be done to Iran!

The danger has been dramatically escalated that the United States will launch yet another catastrophic war — this time against Iran.

Such a war could come by a deliberate decision, or through a series of provocations, reprisals, and misunderstandings. The latter scenario has been made more likely through threats and the positioning of weapons and troops.

President Trump has called attacking Iraq “one of the worst decisions in the history of the country.” Click here to sign a petition telling him not to make a decision that could be even worse.

The U.S. Congress has the power to prevent this looming crime against humanity. Click here to email your Representative and Senators (for U.S. residents only) telling them to cosponsor the bills that would block this war and to take other necessary steps to move us in the direction of peace.
