International Peace Month

Books for moving towards personal, interpersonal and collective peace.

August is International Peace Month.

Founded on August 16, 1926 when delegates at the Fifth International Democratic Peace Conference gathered on France's former battlefields, the goal of the first Peace Month was to study international peace work to better understand the mistakes made during the war. As a believer that peace begins with ourselves and develops through our relationships with each other, I've gathered together some titles that focus on moving toward peace personally, interpersonally and collectively.
