The Public Peace Prize is the only peace award in the world for which the candidates are proposed, nominated and supported simply by citizens of the world. This mark of recognition allows everyone to offer their appreciation for initiatives and for people, known or unknown, who are working for reconciliation, non-violence and mutual aid.
How can we propose a candidature?
New propositions of candidates will be automatically signed up for the 2018 edition of the Public Peace Prize.
Anyone can propose and person or a peace initiative at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org by following three steps.
Any person, group or initiative that contributes to bringing a little more tolerance, understanding, mutual aid, solidarity, inclusion, reconciliation, non-violence or peace to the world is eligible!
1 – Propose
Describe the reasons why you think it’s important that this person, group or initiative be publicly recognized for their contribution to peace, by describing them through a half-page text sent along with several photos before January 1st, 2018
Ask ten other people to write letters of support for the candidate (minimum 10 lines of text each) and send them by email to email@example.com.
3 – Vote
Pull together a team to network and encourage voting for the person or initiative when the voting period is open to the public (see details on our website).
Sign up on the website or “Like” our Facebook page to stay on top of all the details.
Candidates or initiatives who did not win the previous year are automatically re-nominated and eligible for voting during the following year.
How do we offer our support/vote for the finalists?
Everyone is invited to support the finalists of their choice using the following supportive actions:
Each visit to the finalist’s profile page
each “Like” on Facebook or Twitter for the Public Peace Prize
= 1 support/vote
Sharing on Facebook or “retweets” on Twitter
= 2 supports/votes
Comments of appreciation or encouragement
published on the website, on the Facebook page or the Twitter account of the Public Peace Prize,
or sent by email to contact@firstname.lastname@example.org
= 3 supports/votes
The initiatives or candidates who receive a significant amount of support in their category will be proclaimed the laureate of this category. The PPP team reserves the right to create categories in line with the candidatures proposed in order to maximise the recognition of the diversity of actions for peace.
The number of visits to the pages presenting peace initiatives and candidates will also be taken into consideration as an indication of the public’s appreciation.
Just a reminder that the sole objective of the Public Peace Prize is to make better known as many peacemakers, peace projects and peace initiatives as possible to a large audience, beyond all forms of competition! The Public Peace Prize is not a cash prize but a prize of public recognition.
Just like last year, the Public Peace Prize remains a completely unconditional prize, without grants or sponsors, organized by simple volunteer citizens of the world, with the goal of fostering recognition of peacemakers and peace initiatives beyond the boundaries of culture, religion, and social affiliations!
All non-profit organizations can become partners of the prize by associating with the team to help make the prize better known through their own networks.

I want to support the nomination of Father Michael Lapsley. Your form does not tell me clearly how I can do this. Suffice it to say: in his response to thef the cruelty imposed on him by the letter bomb of the SA apartheid police, he has identified with numerous other victims of that unjust order, and he has taken seriously the damage done by apartheid to both the victims and the perpetrators of that violent system. He is an exemplar of the power of forgiveness in policxs, and the substitution of compasson for the ravages of hate in national and world society.

I support the nomination of Marie Dennis for this Peace Prize. I have worked with Marie over many years and her gentle spirit and deep faith had modeled for me the patience that it takes to invite peace to become a reality in various situations, from in house swabbles to global conflicts. Peace is her middle name, one may say, and she had committed her whole life to sharing that with others.
I wholeheartedly support the nomination of Marie Dennis for the Public Peace Prize. She brings a strength and commitment to the work of peacemaking that is an example and support for all of us. Marie and the other nominees provide us all with hope for the future of our world.

He is a nature lover and his philosophy can be know by some of his poetic quotes as follows: “Grow green to live evergreen”; “Go back to nature to create a beautiful future”, ” Mother earth is only our paradise and trees are like God’s in disguise”.These are his rich & pure thoughts of
compassion towards showing respect and love for mother earth,Which I admire and appreciate most about him and I think we all must think seriously and motivate him and support him for this noble cause of growing such a wonderful. awareness, love & compassion towards saving mother earth and nature.As is it very true and as we all know that today how badly the whole environment on this planet earth is facing the environment pollution due to global warming and disturbing the peace of the whole world.Master Dharmendraji gives his lovely conclusion by saying that all human race in the World can live happily and peacefully when ever human being does and follows some sort of exercise daily to
keep themselves fit in mind-body-soul levels and he adds that these can be done by simply doing yoga and meditation exercise.And daily.And first try to love yourself then only you will be able to love others and mother nature.And besides that he insists in saying that every human being must
think and act seriously that they learn to respect mother nature and they don’t cut trees unnecessarily but grow more trees.So that there will be complete balance in human race and in nature.So I truly support him from the bottom of my heart and I also request people to nominate him for the
Public Peace Prize.As I believe his vision is very noble and very helpful for all human race.
