PRAXIS PEACE INSTITUTE is a non-profit peace education organization dedicated to deep inquiry, creative problem solving, and informed civic participation. It is based in Sonoma, California.
In bringing together leading educators, researches, activists, and elected representatives, Praxis Peace Institute has established itself as a vehicle for practical workshops, cutting-edge conferences, and civic education. Their goal is to understand the failed mechanisms of the old systems in order to nurture the visions and alternative structures that support the evolution of systemic peace, social justice, and responsible stewardship of our planet.
Since its founding in 2001, Praxis Peace Institute programs have addressed the most relevant social challenges of our time. These areas include workshops in communication and conflict transformation, inquiries into the effects of culture and propaganda, conferences on participatory democracy and peace building, an invitational conference on solutions to species' extinctions, and a conference that explored what an economic system that supported peace would look like.
In addition to these programs, Praxis Peace Institute has also organized seminar/tours to the Mondragón Cooperatives in Spain and supports the model of worker-ownership as an economic model that supports peaceful relationships.
