From Inner Peace to International Peacebuilding
We’re proud to present our Summer of Peace Global Community, where you can participate with some of the world’s leading peacebuilders in creating a global culture of peace — all year long!
Nobel Peace Laureates, scientists, economists, global thought leaders, teachers, practitioners and activists share their wisdom for co-creating a new peace narrative and effective methods for putting this vision into inspired action.
Out of our deep commitment to peace, The Shift Network is offering these online resources to you ABSOLUTELY FREE.
The Shift Network has identified the Northern Hemisphere’s summer — beginning on June 21, the United Nations’ International Day of Yoga and ending on September 21, the United Nations’ International Day of Peace — as a time to focus our energies.
We are excited to now consolidate our vast resources and share important information and inspiration here for YOU.
Through The Summer of Peace initiatives, you’ll discover:
- A greater sense of ease, joy and well-being with practices to help you connect more profoundly to the deep peace within YOU
- The keys to harmonious and loving relationships with your family, friends, co-workers and community members
- Uplifting stories from those on the front lines of creating positive change in the most desperate areas on the planet
- Best practices for citizen engagement and conscious activism to help accelerate the shift to a world of peace!

11 Days of Global Unity
September 11-21, 2017
11 Days of Global Unity bridges these gaps by connecting and promoting changemakers who are working within each of the identified “themes” — such as Environment, Health, Human Rights, and Peace — and then mobilizing these agents into “11 Campaigns for Change,” offering a comprehensive blueprint for global transformation. This is an example of truly moving from vision into action!
11 Days of Global Unity, produced by The Shift Network in partnership with We, The World, has become a worldwide platform, linking changemakers and their awareness and action campaigns locally to an inspiring global movement for the promotion of peace, justice, sustainability and transformation.
We invite you to join us each day as we discuss and celebrate 11 Campaigns for Change, September 11-21, 2017.

ABOUT THE SHIFT NETWORK’S

The Shift Network is partnering with a number of organizations in advancing strategic initiatives, including the International Cities of Peace in creating 1,000 Cities of Peace by 2020; Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education in promoting global compassion education; the Alliance for Peacebuilding on countering violent extremism; and, PeaceJam and 13 Nobel Peace Laureates in promoting global peace education.
Sanskrit has 108 words for Love.
Islam has 99 names for God.
Japanese has 14 words for Beauty.
We’ve got one word for Peace.
We don’t have enough words to accurately
describe all the different types of peace.
I think it was Socrates who once said,
“If you don’t have a word to describe something,
then how can you think about it?”
