PUBLIC PEACE PRIZE FOUNDATION

Public Peace Prize

Public Peace Prize

How many men, women and organizations have dedicated a large part of their existence to resolving conflicts and creating conditions for peace, but will never be recognized? Yes, every year prestigious awards are presented to a number of artisans of peace who distinguish themselves by their efforts, courage and ceaseless work in the name of a just, lasting and constructive peace. However, how many individuals, who are just as devoted but less visible, remain little known? The Public Peace Prize (PPP), established in 2013 by a team of ordinary citizens, has the specific mission of making known to the general public the less known local, national and international peacemakers and peace initiatives. This citizen’s initiative is in keeping with the spirit of collaboration and open sharing which is proper to new media. Anyone may: propose a nominee by following simple instructions; support candidates when they have been validated and posted on the Peace Prize’s site and its Facebook page; post / share nominee profiles and their actions for peace on their own social media networks. The nomination process and the public’s supportive actions conclude with the announcement of the recipients during a day of online celebration of peace initiatives and peacemakers. While the PPP does not award cash prizes, it greatly contributes to the recognition of the laureates.
