NEW: PEP Talk – Peace in the Western Hemisphere!

Are you tired of all the bad news about peace and the environment? Promoting Enduring Peace has launched a new program, PEP Talks, featuring informational and motivational videos on important peace and environmental issues. The talks focus on success stories — and draw lessons from these successes to help address the critical peace and justice issues we have yet to solve.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos (left) and FARC commander Timoleon Jimenez (right) shake hands as Raul Castro looks on at a signing ceremony of a cease-fire deal in Havana. "It is the first time ever that a guerrilla group lays down its arms to submit to a justice system where they are going to be investigated, judged, and condemned and sanctioned," Santos said.

The first PEP Talk reports on the end of war in the Western Hemisphere and the factors that led to such a remarkable outcome. The last armed conflict, in Colombia, was resolved through “soft tactics” that encouraged disarmament and negotiation, and approach that earned Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize.

It will not be easy to secure peace around the globe. “But we have the example of peace in the Western Hemisphere to point to — and doesn’t everyone want the same things: Peace, security and the opportunity to make their lives better?”

This PEP Talk can be viewed on our YouTube: The Western Hemisphere is at Peace.
