Promoting Sustainable Security
This area of work is based on our understanding that the world is made less secure by economic inequalities, resource depletion and competition, the threat of climate change and the unequal and unaccountable use of political power. The work is about questioning and challenging the mind-set underpinning these problems and about promoting the longer-term resolution of insecurity and conflict.
The aims for this work are:
Within the overall task of Northern Friends Peace Board – “to advise and encourage Friends in the North, and through them their fellow Christians and citizens generally, in the active promotion of peace in all its height and breadth “,
- to promote sustainable security as a peace priority
- to collaborate and to support existing initiatives
