A Vision of a Peaceful Future

Imagine if every man, woman and child in every nation and country, from every religion and creed, were united in peace.

Our dream...

The World Peace Flame is a symbol of peace, unity, freedom and celebration. We believe in the essential freedom of the human spirit to create peace at any time under any circumstances – a view endorsed by the millions of people who have lit The World Peace Flame as a symbol of this dream.


The Ambassadors’ Statement for Peace

Ambassadors and Foreign Ministers from every country endorsed a joint Statement for Peace, committing to uphold humanity’s future generations. It was the first time in history that every country in the world has come together to make a statement for peace.

Message from Kofi Anann
former Secretary-General of the United Nations

"We can build a better world for succeeding generations, if we only summon the will.

You are all, in your own way, nurturing the culture of peace for the sake of our children and grandchildren."

A mission worth striving for

The World Peace Flame is dedicated to achieving peace through education and practical support of grassroots peace initiatives.

We do this by:

  • installing WPF monuments worldwide
  • presenting flames to international decisionmakers
  • introducing peace education into schools worldwide through our WPF educational package
  • inspiring millions of people to take a few moments each day to align with the peace within
  • producing books, DVDs and CDs that teach peace through personal development
  • humanitarian projects.
