Changing the world -- the most fun you can have with your whole heart!
With over 17 years of experience around the world, the PeaceJam Foundation is the global leader in developing young activists and engaging them in their local and global communities. This award winning nonprofit is led by thirteen Nobel Peace Laureates, including the Dalai Lama, Rigoberta Menchu and Desmond Tutu. The PeaceJam Foundation has been nominated nine times for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Google and PeaceJam have now come together to launch "One Billion Acts of Peace" -- an international global citizen's movement led by thirteen Nobel Peace Laureates and designed to tackle the toughest issues facing humanity. Between now and 2018, young people and adults will work together to create one billion high quality projects addressing the roots causes of the most important problems facing our planet -- crucial areas like rights for women and children, access to clean water for all, and alleviating extreme poverty.
Our goal is to create the coolest, most effective, and most fun global citizen's campaign that the world has ever seen!
