World BEYOND War, May 16, 2019

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 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.  AGSS is complemented by our online study guide “Study War No More” that provides guiding questions for discussion & action, and features videos of changemakers actively designing the new system. AGSS is utilized as a learning, planning and organizing tool by community groups, schools, universities, and policymakers around the world.

The Educators’ Challenge Awards are presented to projects that effectively communicate and increase engagement among young people and the general public around global risks including war, climate change, and nuclear weapons. Finalists were selected by a jury that included members from BBC Earth, Games for Change, National Geographic, Ashoka, and EsGlobal among others.

A Global Security System: An Alternative to War is also now available as an audio book!
