Beyond Violence 
close
Through this web portal, social media, and mobile phones we unite people globally in a movement campaigning for constructive non-violent change. Because violence never solves conflict.

Listen:

We are a movement of people who LISTEN to our members from conflict areas on how best to push against violence in their conflicts. Only by listening to these local voices can campaigns be sustainable and successful.

Connect:

Today, more people in developing countries use the internet mobile phones than in developed countries. There is nearly one mobile phone in the world for each human being. We use this enormous potential to CONNECT people globally so they can act together.

Empower:

Our worldwide and yet locally led movement overcomes the fear of standing up alone against violence. We EMPOWER by joining hands and we stay to build a local movement in each conflict, campaigning for non-violent and constructive actions.
