Earth @ Peace realises a Just and Ecologically Sustainable Peace. It is a Landmark Conference held tat the University of Divinity, Melbourne, over 2 days, Tuesday-Wednesday 23-24 April 2019. This conference will feature panel discussions, working groups, a hypothetical, and international networking. Due demand and booking filled early, it has been decided to live stream the conference from the Earth @ Peace Website.
But there are promising signs. A treaty to ban nuclear weapons is in the making. Those working for it won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. Regardless of government policies, a new ecological consciousness is taking root in most parts of the world, while in virtually every country action on climate change is under way. And on many other fronts we see evidence of greater awareness and a renewed willingness to act.
One of the more inspiring developments over the last 20 years is the fledgling movement calling for a shift from ‘Just War’ to ‘Just Peace’. It is clearly time to question the just war tradition that has informed theology, ethics more generally and international law for the last several centuries.
This project, sponsored by a wide range of organisations and individuals, is part of that movement. It heralds a new approach to peace ― a deeper understanding of safety and security.
