The Peace Talks Webinar

The Peace Talks webinar took place on three dates: 21 November 2017, 14 December 2017, and 29 January 2018. They were a rare opportunity to have conversations with Scilla Elworthy, who has not only been nominated 3 times for the Peace Nobel Price and has 45 years of experience in peace building worldwide. The webinar was live: each was 60 minutes of deep learning followed by in-depth Q&A!

The Peace Talks Webinar will help you to understand

What are the drivers of war?

We will explore why war continues, whose interests it serves, how policy makers think, and why people love to fight. War makes a few people extremely rich, and makes millions of poor people desperate. Global military expenditure rose in 2016 to $1,686 billion. $10 billion brings clean water and sanitation to everyone on the planet.

Why is it in global interests to stop war?

Armed conflict causes massive economic losses every year, yet peace-building and peace-keeping are grossly under-funded. The spending in 2015 on peace-building ($6.8 billion) and peacekeeping ($8.27 billion) together represented just 2 per cent of the economic losses caused by conflict.

How can war be stopped?

In my Peace Talks Webinar, I explain proven systems that effectively prevent armed conflict and build safety at local, national and international levels. I will explain how it works in practice, followed by the plan of how it can now be implemented at scale. I will share my first-ever assessment of what a 10-year strategy will cost.

Who can do this and how?

The current exponential rise in citizen action shows how fast humanity is evolving toward a more awakened, empathic society. In my Peace Talks Webinar I will outline what anyone who wants to be active to prevent violence and armed conflict can do. You will learn, what a huge invisible upsurge in grassroots action you can be part of.

  • “I find it impossible to comprehend how so many of the human race seem more intent on waging wanton destruction, rather than creating sustainable solutions towards establishing lasting peace. This is why Scilla Elworthy’s exceptional book is so compelling. It has been written for people who want to step out of helplessness and find out how they can apply their own personal skills to do something about the challenges now facing us. Read on and learn how you can engage.”

  • “We need individuals like Dr. Elworthy to start the work of preventing war. This has been my personal dream for many years.”

  • “Scilla Elworthy is worthy of a strong push from all of us. If we are to create a sustainable civilization at his point in history (and we must, in order to survive) it is precisely this thinking and writing that must prevail. She has my strong support and concurrence with her efforts.”

  • “This is the current evolutionary process that most people don’t yet see: namely that the desired outer changes cannot come about without the inner change, as Einstein said. The quality of your awareness will directly affect the quality of the results you produce. This book demonstrates – steadily and sensibly – how anyone can develop this inner power to build their own personal contribution to the future, and to a world that works for all. It will wake you up to the challenges now facing the planet, and inspire you with sparkling accounts of what people are already doing to meet those challenges. It will show you how to build your own vision of the kind of future you want for your children, and the energy to make that vision real. I suggest you use this book as a guide, so that you too can become a 21st century pioneer of the possible.”
