The Academy was organized by CGNK to provide a select group of promising young leaders with a life changing experience related to the real and much needed possibilities of a world where killing is no longer taken for granted. The pilot consisted of a two week program comprising 12 participants from countries as Liberia, Western Sahara, Italy, Lebanon, Palestine, Germany, Kenya, Thailand, Philippines, India, the United States and Hawai’i itself. Participants were nominated by past Nobel Peace Laureates, as well as drawn from organizations and networks partnering with the Center for Global Nonkilling.

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization in the short, medium and long term to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence?

Build a Global Alliance for Nonkilling, focused on the promotion of change toward the measurable goal of a killing-free world.

Popularize nonkilling and nonviolence through new formats and materials: parenting guides, video games, comic books, films, music, poetry, school curriculum, ...

Continue to promote an increased presence of nonkilling oriented research and university-based projects and courses, contributing toward a major paradigm shift.

Develop guides of good practices, case-studies and policy recommendations based on experiences that have effectively contributed to reduce killing on the ground.

GLOBAL MOVEMENT: How do you think the culture of peace and nonviolence could be strengthened and supported at the world level??

The scientific community increasingly challenging the premise that killing is acceptable. This shift in the basic premise for research analysis will contribute to a major shift from a killing to a nonkilling paradigm which embrances peace, justice and nonviolence as common goals and nonkilling as program for their realization.
