I am making a personal effort to help promote peace by creating my own peace contest called the "Going for A Global Truce" Peace Contest.
After watching Jeromy Gilley's TED Talk called One Day Of Peace and the other TED talks listed below I asked myself how I can help promote peace as an individual.
I thought of the idea of creating a "Going for A Global Truce" Peace contest. My goal was to inspire people to take actions to spread the idea that attaining a lasting global truce is possible. People love a competition where there are winners, and prizes so I just established my own peace contest to get started. I offered my own money for two small prizes, one for contestants under 21 and one for contestants over 21.
As more and more people enter I will seek sponsors to make many larger prizes and awards possible. I just threw in my hat and put the idea out there. I hope it works. The winner(s) will be announced on 9/21/12 on Global Peace one Day.
I hope it will inspire us to imagine peace and global truce.
I also wish to encourage others to think of innovative ideas at how we can move humanity to go peaceful and green.
Do you believe humanity has the capacity to stop war before we destroy the planet with a WW 3
How do you think we can inspire humanity to go peaceful and green? Are you willing to work to put those ideas into action to make them a reality?
Would you like to enter my contest or create other ways to help spread the idea that a global truce is attainable in our lifetime?
How do you think we are we going to stop war?
I think we really need to establish an international "Going For A Global Truce" Peace Think Tank and I will post that as an Idea on the TED conversation and on the Peace and collaborative Network.
I have a telephone conference ID and Pin and I am willing to commit to moderate the telephone conference think tank meeting if people write to me and would like to participate.
I would then give them the phone number and pin to call. We can set a time for instance each Sunday at 2pm or so. We can organize an online planning meeting. What do you all think?
