We worked with the NW Earth Institute to develop a discussion course for use within living rooms, community settings, classrooms and may other settings. The discussion course titled, “Seeing Systems: Peace, Justice and Sustainability” was released in April 2014. Within these links you will find a description of the course – http://www.nwei.org/discussion-courses-2/seeing-systems-peace-justice/
Since winter 2013 a growing coalition of individuals and organizations – mainly from the U.S. peace movement – have been involved in intensive collaboration and actual planning for a re-energized effort to build a movement to end all war (henceforth: World Beyond War). The underlying ideas and vision of these efforts add the until now unavailable movement component to the work of the War Prevention Initiative.
The War Prevention Initiative of the Jubitz Family Foundation and University of Oregon Law School’s Appropriate Dispute Resolution Center co-sponsored an exploratory brainstorming session to discuss a possible campaign in Oregon inspired by the Minnesota Arms Spending Alternatives Project (MNASAP).
