MORE than 40 people with wide-ranging expertise will pool their knowledge and ideas and propose an action plan for peace at a two-day conference this weekend at Auckland University of Technology.
As Peace Foundation president Dr John Hinchcliff says in the above video interview with Pacific Media Watch’s Alistar Kata:
“The world is facing a grim future in many directions, in not
just nuclear weapons.”
The idea is for people share their knowledge as the basis for understanding the global threats and developing realistic action that might make a difference.
According to the World Without War action website, participants include “senior academics from AUT, the University of Auckland and Waikato University, experts against violence and war from Sweden and New Zealand, critics concerned about high tech weaponry, leaders representing our youth, the United Nations, Māoridom, education and religions.”
