Leaders for Peace

Seventy years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and a century after the end of the First World War, the young, former students of the Citadel of Peace intend to launch an Appeal to the entire world population to take the first step towards decisive change regarding the theme of human rights.
Invited by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Representative to the United Nations, Rondine will bring its twenty-year experience in promoting dialogue and the creative transformation of conflicts on all levels, which has been studied and now also applauded by academia, to the United Nations headquarters in New York on December 10th. With the Leaders for Peace campaign, Rondine will ask each of the 193 Member States to take a symbolic sum from its defense budget and direct it towards the training of as many global leaders that will be able to intervene in the main conflict situations in the world, promoting the development of pacified social and political relations. Rondine will also ask each Member State to consider including education of human rights in national education systems, integrating them together with the experiments of the Rondine Method on the creative transformation of conflicts.
The objective is the gradual extinction of war contexts from the world through the affirmation of a new culture that unmasks the false concept of enemy, producing immense benefits and spreading among its citizens the skills to positively transform conflicts, integrating the teaching of the Rondine Method with that of human rights.

Help us achieve 25000 signatures and together we will train leaders to govern future peace processes

With the meaning and for the purposes of articles 6.1.b, 6.1.f, 7 and 13 of EU Regulation 2016/679 I agree to my personal data processing, according to the Privacy Policy.

Its objective is to contribute to a world free of armed conflict, in which every person has the tools to creatively manage different conflicts. The Studentato Internazionale – World House is a project that gives rise and continuous inspiration to Rondine. It welcomes young people coming from countries affected by armed conflict or post-conflict situations, helping them to discover the human being in their enemy, through the difficult and impressive commitment to live together. With its training courses, Rondine encourages them to become leaders of themselves, their communities, and agents of change in a global and civil society, searching continuously for the common good.

“Facing our challenges with courage and curiosity can lead us to transform even the most pressing difficulties into opportunities. Every day at Rondine, elements of conflict are transformed into opportunities for meeting and living together. “
Alex Zanardi

“Rondine is an extraordinary human and spiritual experience, which has opened my heart. It is born from the curiosity and the desire to know, which are the engines that drives us forward. We must free ourselves from the obligation to be afraid. “
Brunello Cucinelli

Remembering is also this: fighting for a better world. Rondine is a small village where they live and
cultivate a dream in which I recognize myself. A utopia? Maybe yes, but beautiful.

“I have great admiration for Rondine’s tireless efforts to promote peaceful coexistence and the transformation of conflicts. It reminds us that welcoming those who are different from us does not weaken our convictions and that human beings can recognize themselves in universal values. “
Hassan bin Talal – Principe di Giordania

"Globalization has upset diplomacy and relations between states. We need to create networks in the global world, because in the global world we have the illusion that we know everything. The work that was born at Rondine, a network of friendship and communication, is particularly important because it represents a safe deposit of peace, at the base of the Mediterranean globalization affair. " Andrea Riccardi
"Violence always occupies the front pages of newspapers, but we should focus on the stories of hope that come from associations like Rondine and I hope its young people will become the new generation of leaders in their own countries, helping to resolve conflicts effectively. " Noa

"Respecting other people's cultures and traditions is essential for overcoming conflicts: diversity is wealth for humankind and future salvation for the planet. Rondine is cultivating this and I hope that the fruit of its work will expand all over the world. " Vandana Shiva
"Creativity is fundamental to building peace. Conflict is the salt of existence and, without violence, it is something good that every individual should learn to develop. But to do this we must use creativity. We should therefore learn to value young people and their ability to develop greater imaginations. Rondine is a fine example of creativity, confrontation, and dialogue. It is a place without violence." Johan Galtung

"Today we express anger through violence. My grandfather taught me how to channel it into positive action. Peace depends on us, on each of us, and in how much we believe in it. Here at Rondine we believe. " Arun Gandhi
