The Peace Foundation is a not for profit organisation working to build peaceful relationships among people of all ages and cultures, from personal to global through education, research and action.
The Peace Foundation would like to thank the schools who participated in our 2016 peace symposium:

Schools’ Peace Week 2016 was a fantastic success with our best ever participation numbers – 264 schools from across the globe participated! We had schools in New Zealand, Pakistan, China, the USA, Jordan and New Caledonia participating. To read more about the event, please click here.
We are delighted to announce that Norm Hewitt, former All Black is joining the Peace Foundation as an Ambassador.
Norm’s journey, to use a sporting metaphor, has definitely been a game of two halves. The first half dominated by the ‘school of hard knocks’ with physical abuse and bullying suffered and then dished out. The second half about restoration and forgiveness for himself and others.
