Vision of Humanity
Vision of Humanity is IEP’s “sister” website. It aims to highlight the major issues facing us in the 21st century taking a balanced approach with factual information that is positive and solution based. Vision of Humanity brings a strategic approach to raising the world’s attention and awareness around the importance of peace to humanity’s survival in the 21st century.
The Vision of Humanity website features the Global Peace Index interactive map, visualising states of peace around the world over the past seven years. Annual GPI discussion papers, results reports and media coverage can also be found on the site.
Why Vision of Humanity?
We are in an epoch different to any other in human history. The problems we are facing are global in nature. They include climate change, ever decreasing biodiversity, full use of the fresh water on the planet and underpinning all these – overpopulation. Without peace we will be unable to achieve the levels of cooperation, inclusiveness and social equity required to begin solving these challenges, let alone empower the international institutions needed to regulate them.
It is impossible to accurately portray the devastating effects that global challenges will have on us all unless unified global action is taken. Our shared challenges call for global solutions, and these solutions will require cooperation on a global scale unparalleled in human history.
Vision of Humanity highlights the need to further study, advocate and act on peace. It groups together a number of interrelated initiatives focused on global peace which enjoy the support of a wide range of philanthropists, business people, politicians, religious leaders and intellectuals.
Recently released IEP publicationsThe Economic Cost of Violence Containment provides a comprehensive assessment of the global cost of violence.
