SAFECITY

  safecity-ppp-2018-en             

A virtual initiative that improves the safety for women and girls in urban areas

Safecity is a non-profit organization in the United States under the name Red Dot Foundation Global and in India as the Red Dot Foundation. Founded and led by ElsaMarie D’Silva, this team aims to make cities safer by promoting equal access to public spaces for all. In this way Safecity improves the lives of women, girls, youth and the elderly through awareness, interaction and education.

Safecity encourages victims of sexual harassment (mainly women and girls) to share their stories, to learn that they are not alone as “victims”, to feel able to defend themselves and to confront the aggressor.

These data, which can be anonymous, are grouped in a virtual platform as hot spots on a map showing trends at the local level and allows, among other things, to better understand the “safe” landscape of a region and make the most informed decision when people want to go there.

This information is useful for individuals, local communities and local government to identify the factors behind violent behavior and to work on strategies for finding solutions.

Artist for peace, tolerance and solidarity

Nilanjana Sanyal, woman, humanist, passionate and committed to the peace process in Hyderabad, India.

With training in psychology, law, peace studies (Ambassadorship), creative writing and the Liberal Arts, including music and photography. She has volunteered/worked (flexibly) with different social organizations including the then “Social Services Division” (now, Corporate Sustainability) of TATA STEEL, reporting to the late Dr. Dhruv Dey, Director. She has often had an arduous life journey marked by a challenge which has also restricted her travel and braved with more courage.

Much of her writings pertain to poverty, inequality, sustainable development and peace and nonviolence.  In her books she has raised a series of haunting questions. How to reach the fruits of development to the rural poor, the underprivileged, the physically handicapped, and the female child? How to ensure that development is not achieved at the expense of nature and the environment? How to organise popular movements for the restoration of values and genuine peace in society? She believes that the progress, prosperity, peace and happiness of nations are in a large part determined by the extent to which we address the welfare, well-being and quality of lives of our women and children.

Launch of the period to support the Finalists of the 2018 Public Peace Prize campaign

What are the public visibility criteria?

  • Recognition in as many countries as possible
  • The number of shares, comments and likes
  • The sustained support of all the teams to all the finalists.

How does a finalist go to the laureate’s stage?

Important : each week a new profile is introduced on our website and our Facebook page. The quality and number of all forms of support during seven days in a row following the launching of this finalist will illustrate the real success of the present edition of the PPP.

The 2018 edition of the Public Peace Prize innovates!

The 2018 edition of the Public Peace Prize innovates
by making the endorsement process for
the laureates completely non-competitive!

A prize daring to step outside old elitist models

The Public Peace Prize, the only peace prize in the world for which candidates are proposed, nominated and supported by the planet’s simple citizens, wants to further encourage a culture of mutual aid, collaboration and peace.

Completely new in 2018 is that all participants will be called upon to contribute to sustaining each initiative or artisan of peace beyond any form of competition.

Read more about how to propose an initiative or a person:
https://publicpeaceprize.org/propose-an-initiative-or-a-person/

Why this new approach? Because many competitions and prizes end up involuntarily supporting elitist trends. Invariably this creates more losers than winners. We just need to think about all the initiatives and artisans of peace who remain little known, shadowed by those officially proclaimed winners.

Noteworthy is the fact that for years now, and thanks to public support, the PPP has largely contributed to making known over thirty finalists and laureates around the world.

Like previous years, the Public Peace Prize is a completely cost-free, unsubsidized, unsponsored prize, run by ordinary volunteers, citizens of the world. Its purpose is to promote greater support for the artisans and initiatives of peace beyond borders, cultures, religions and social backgrounds.

Wanted: Volunteers and Correspondents

The People’s Peace Prize is looking for writers, translators, communicators, artists, musicians and correspondents in different countries to contribute to the process of acknowledging world peace initiatives and artisans of peace!

Email: contact@prixpublicpaix.org

Together for the recognition
of initiatives and artisans of peace
in the world!
