Join us for a conversation with Steve Killelea, founder and executive chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace about his new book, ‘Peace in the Age of Chaos’; why he believes peace is a perquisite for survival of society as we know it in the 21st century; and how Positive Peace provides an exciting new approach to solving some of the most intractable problems of our time.
The major challenges facing humanity are global in nature – climate change, pandemics, ever decreasing biodiversity, lack of usable fresh water and food security to name a few. Without a world that is basically peaceful, we will never get the levels of trust, cooperation and inclusiveness needed to solve these issues – yet, what creates peace is poorly understood.
In his ground-breaking debut novel, ‘Peace in the Age of Chaos’, Steve Killelea, founder of both the Global Peace Index and the world-renowned think tank the Institute for Economics and Peace, shares his personal journey to study, understand and measure peace – a peace that positive, achievable and a tangible measure of human wellbeing and progress.
This webinar will livestream at 7 pm on Thursday, 18 February 2021.
