Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contibute the best that they have and all that they are.~Hafsat Abiola

the Impact platform for Peace and Consciousness?
Peace is really each and everyone's responsibility. And we don't even know that. We can feel so disempowered, may be overwhelmed and confused with the state of the world. We're so lost in everything that happened out there. That we don't even know that we have the power to change it.
We see around in the world that there are so many initiatives aiming for peace and a lot of them are basically looking up to the governments to negotiate Peace.
We believe peace starts from all of us within. A lot of people don't know how to make it a practical, personal step to make in daily life.
With the platform we want to create a space where we can all find Peace from within and build this ripple effect in ourselves in our neighbourhood, communities into the world.
Not the other way around.
We strongly believe it comes from society. And if we don't know how to make it happen: the platform we can provide practical tools.
Peace can become a lens through which you see the world. Be it. Live it. Radiate it out. Peace is an inside job.~ Wayne Dyer
are we doing actively on the platform?
We are active on three levels
1. Personal Development
We know Peace starts with ourselves.
In our families, in our workplaces, so, how do we act from peace in our conversations with ourselves, at our family kitchen table? We offer practical tools to strengthen individuals and small groups online to start interacting from peace based communications.
2. Showcase examples
Let's make peace from a noun to a verb. The impact platform on Peace and consciousness takes a stand for making Peace accessible for society on a day to day basis. Listening and communication are essential to be integrated into all we do, to make Peace as a verb, action
3. Local and global connections
We bring local initiatives to a global platform to create an inspiring example for each other.
We connect global organisations as Peace Direct of Scilla Elworthy, The Heartmath Institute of Sheva Carr, FemQ, The True PurposeⓇ Institute and many more because we know only from connection, collaboration peace becomes a reality.
Only if we understand can we care. Only if we care can we help. Only if we help shall we all be saved.~ Jane Goodall
if you become active on the Impact Platform for Peace and Consciousness?
Peace is a practise, like a muscle that we develop. Being with ourselves like being at peace with imperfection. We have to train our Peace-muscle to create a society where peace in action is the norm, not the exception.
Reading a book or only taking a pill won’t get your in muscles build up, by doing you create the results, so it is with peace.
the GIFEW Impact platform for Peace and consciousness?
When we speak about evolving women and the transformation of humanity, it often easier said than done when you live in a part of the world that is without war. Freedom of expressing yourself and be physically safe to take action is a direct result of peace.
All that touches society in education, politics, ecology, health, justice and even art, it is connected with peace. The Impact Platform for Peace and Consciousness takes a stand for the integration of the principles of Peace such as inclusion, listening and communication based on unity.
It is time to evolve the capacities, especially women, have to create peace as a verb. Still, if we look at the USG, peace is the least financially funded and least progressive goal among them all.
If women start acting to create peace, our societies will flourish. We can set the tone. Together with men we can create the orchestra.

While women are often the first victims of armed conflict, they must also and always be recognised as key to the resolution of the conflict. Unless women are engaged in advancing the culture of peace at equal levels with men, sustainable peace will continue to elude us.
When their equality is not established in all spheres of human activity, neither the human right to peace is possible, nor the culture of peace is worthwhile.
Without peace, development is impossible, and without women, neither peace nor development is possible. ~ Anwarul K. Chowdhury
