Building a Culture of Peace across Scotland
A Scotland engaged in a global community: supporting life through a regenerative world economy with peaceful and just local communities celebrating nonviolence, diversity, equality of opportunity, and cultivating respect for all.
Promoting nonviolence and conflict resolution, and modelling a just society.
Challenging pervasive militarism and advocating for disarmament.
Protecting mother earth in the face of the climate and ecological crises.
Upholding human rights and challenging systemic injustices.
We recognise all expressions of life, welcoming and seeking diversity, both within the organisation and those with whom we work. We nurture our capacity to stay present in each interaction and in all that we do; endeavouring to act with consideration for each other’s needs, so that people’s authentic voices are heard.
We strive to model nonviolence within our organisation and with those with whom we work; cultivating the courage to make brave choices and to act with integrity and compassion.
We strive to collaborate in creative ways, applying imagination in our endeavour to transform to a peaceful future; recognising the role culture plays in changing attitudes and transforming society, and the power of creativity to inspire.
We act courageously and with openness, willing to be changed as we learn to become better allies to those experiencing violence and oppression.
We act with and promote respect for the wellbeing of all life, recognising our interconnectivity and ecological and social responsibility.
