World BEYOND War

Founded in 2014, World BEYOND War is a global grassroots network of volunteers, activists, and allied organizations advocating for the abolition of war and its replacement with an alternative global security system based on peace, nonviolence, and demilitarization. Our work debunks the myths that war is inevitable, just, necessary, or beneficial. Our peace education programs lay out the strategies needed to demilitarize security, manage conflict nonviolently, and cultivate a culture of peace. Our grassroots campaigns focus on weapons divestment and closing military bases around the world. Our offerings include webinars, podcasts, conferences, mapping militarism charts, online courses, books, powerpoints, articles, a study and discussion guide, peace almanac, and much more. Members in 175 countries have signed the Declaration of Peace. Sign the Declaration of Peace at to get involved!
