The US Association for the University for Peace (UPEACE/US) was founded in 2006 to promote and advance the United Nations-mandated University for Peace and the cause of education for peace. The vision that Kofi Annan eluded to is "to provide humanity with an institution of higher education for peace and with the aim of promoting among all human beings the spirit of understanding, tolerance and peaceful coexistence, to stimulate cooperation among peoples and to help lessen obstacles and threats to world peace and progress, in keeping with the nobel aspirations proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations.In pursuit of this mandate, the work of UPEACE/US is based on three main areas (1) Education & Training for Peace, (2) Global Network for Upeacebuilders, and (3) Strategic Development for the UPEACE System. Our programs help to make tangible advancements to peace through innovation and education. For more information visit www.upeaceus.org
