The mission of the PeaceJam Foundation is to create young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates who can pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody.
PeaceJam is a unique, international educational programme for children and young people aged 5 to 25. The participating Nobel Peace Laureates are directly involved in developing the PeaceJam curriculum and the PeaceJam Foundation itself.
PeaceJam is the only organisation in the world that has so many Nobel Peace Laureates working together long-term for a common cause: the leadership development of our young people.
We accomplish this mission through award-winning documentaries, educational materials that encourage young people to learn through volunteering and social action, and fun interactive events around the world that have so far engaged a million young people.
In September 2006, 10 Nobel Peace Laureates launched the Global Call to Action campaign to tackle what they perceived as the most pressing issues facing our planet. In 2014, the PeaceJam Foundation launched the One Billion Acts of Peace Campaign — a global citizens’ campaign to engage the world in acts of peace in ten key focus areas.
