World without Wars and Violence is an international humanist organisation, part of the Humanist Movement. We were founded in 1994 and we are active in 30 countries. In 2009 we initiated the World March for Peace and Nonviolence. WwW has Special Consultative Status with the UN Economic and Social Council since 2012
We could easily begin this invitation by scaring you with statistics about violence, conflict, and war. “The world is becoming an increasingly insecure and hostile place”, we might say. “We are more likely to face our own extinction than to live to see a day of truly global peace.
Despite attempts by various international organisms (the UN among them), war and violence continue to be justified as part of a supposed “human nature”. WwW has a humanist vision of the human being as an historical being whose mode of social action changes their own nature (2).
