The appeal

In December 2018, seventy years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rightsand a century after the end of the First World War, Rondine’s students and alumnilaunched an Appeal to the entire world to take a first step towards decisive, positive shift concerning human rights at the global level

With the “Leaders for Peace” campaign, Rondine asks each of the 193 MemberStates to devote a symbolic sum from its defense budget to the training of as manyyoung, global peace leaders. These new leaders will be able to intervene in the world’s most complex conflict scenarios, promoting the development of pacifiedsocial and political relations.

Rondine also asks each UN Member State to consider including education onhuman rights in national education systems, integrating it with the Rondine Method for the creative transformation of conflicts.

The objective is the gradual extinction of war contexts from the world through the affirmation of a new culture capable of unmasking the false concept of enemy, and of spreading among all citizens the skills to positively transform conflicts by integratingthe teaching of the Rondine Method with human rights.

Invited by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Italian Representative to the United Nations, Rondine launched the campaign and the Appeal in an international event held at the United Nations headquarters in New York on December 10th, 2018.

One year later, on December 5th, 2019, Rondine’s students came back to the UN to demonstrate that what initially appeared as a wishful dream was instead becomingreality. During its first year, the campaign received the endorsement of the Presidentof Italy Mattarella and of His Holiness Pope Francis, moreover, the Italian Prime Minister officially signed the Appeal and the 2019 UN event has been co-sponsoredby the delegations of Armenia, Jordan, the European Union, by the Office of the UN Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth, and with the participation of Sierra Leone.

We hope that many other States and institutions will join the campaign soon: help usin promoting the campaign and the Appeal in the world.
