The Legislate Peace Campaign is a global peace campaign that supports the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Originally initiated by collecting signatures of support. It was now expanded to various forms of events as efforts to increase the awareness of the Declaration in different parts of the world has grown. In order to support the implementation of an international legal instrument compatible with this document many activities have been carried out worldwide by individuals and organizations from all levels of society. This campaign operates from both a bottom-up and top-down legal approach that brings together all people in a united heart for the common goal of peace. Everyone has the ability to show their heart by signing their support to leave a legacy of peace that will become the shining light of hope for all future generations.
Created with the intent of serving as a comprehensive, bottom-up approach towards establishing a legal framework in accordance with the principles of the DPCW. The Legislate Peace Campaign has allowed many who are desperately yearning for peace to join the peacebuilding efforts in their communities and abroad. This campaign provides all global citizens with the opportunity to make a positive change for peace and have their voice for peace heard loud and clear all around the world.
The Legislate Peace Campaign inspires all global citizens to take direct action to preserve their basic human rights. There is an inherent duty for mankind to prevent conflict and promote harmonious coexistence in this world. So, this campaign acts as a means by which all individuals can fulfill this responsibility through their active participation in the efforts to promote the universal standards embodied by the DPCW.
Although the original method of collecting supporting signatures continues to this day, the campaign has evolved to now incorporate events such as conferences and seminars, peace walks and festivals and other creative outlets by which peace messengers worldwide proclaim their support for the DPCW and work to gain acknowledgement from community and governmental leaders.
The strength of this campaign lies in the fact that it not only calls on state governments and leaders to advocate for the implementation of the DPCW, but it also charges all global citizens, regardless of social standing, to participate in the movement as well. In this manner, comprehensive cooperation between governments and civil society actors can be achieved, which is the key to establishing sustainable peace that can be passed down to future generations.

Keep the movement going by spreading the message of peace within your community and collect even more signatures of support.

Host of Koori Radio
I believe that we as global multicultural citizens don't really have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change, but small actions like IPYG Peace Walk relay can act to collect from a single DPCW legislation campaign signature fast-multiplied by millions of people to transform this mundane world by Cessation of War.
