Teaspoons of Peace

Small but significant choices, decisions and actions creating more peace in the world

What is peace? What is a culture of peace? What does it mean to be peaceful? What are personal choices, decisions and actions needed to create more peace in the world? What does it take to be an active and effective peace-maker?

Teaspoons of Peace is an answer to all of those questions. It follows on from the Teaspoons of Change concept and organisation knowing that any action, even small actions, multiplied by lots of people equals big change, and in this case specific to Peace.

From June to December 2017 d’Arcy will be visiting many people, places and countries to research for his master’s thesis looking at what is a culture of peace and how can Teaspoons of Peace make a positive contribution.
