Mission & philosophy
Our dream is as simple as ambitious:
one flame uniting people all over the world.
We believe in the essential freedom of the human spirit to create peace at any time, under any circumstances—a view shared by the millions of people who have lit The World Peace Flame as a symbol of this dream.
We believe that there is an innate essential part of evey human being that seeks to feel at peace. Is it possible that our whole endeavour is to achieve this aim, be it by sharing food, or even buying a new item of clothing to helping a friend in need. It is the same search for 'inner peace'. The World Peace Flame is an outward symbol of this essence that links us across the so-called boundaries of our nationality, faith, colour, shape and size!
From a distance, we are one world, one humanity. Working together, we can make this dream a reality. It is not always the big acts of kindness that transform lives, but the consistant acts of kindness and collaboration that will eventually make the change. When we light a flame of peace, we make a difference. When we help a friend in need, we make a difference. When we support a good cause, we make a difference. We can all play a part in creating peace.
The World Peace Flame offers the inspiration, that we as individuals do and can make a difference to this world by our thoughts, actions and words. It is a reminder that we should never give up hope and never stop making the effort to create peace.
The Education Package: 'Peace in your Hands', is an opportunity to bring young people together to start thinking about the possibility that we can make a difference by our acts of kindness. The medical camps in India are a direct way to give back to the world we live in and help those less fortunate than outselves. The events and gatherings and Peace Monuments are an opportunity for all of us to particpate, come together and share our combined aspsiration for a better world.
