PAX stands for peace. Together with people in conflict areas and critical citizens in the Netherlands, we work on a dignified, democratic and peaceful society, everywhere in the world.
Peace requires courage. The courage to believe that peace is possible, to row against the tide, to speak out and to carry on no matter what. Everyone in the world can contribute to peace, but that takes courage. The courage to praise peace, to shout it from the rooftops and to write it on the walls. The courage to call politicians to accountability and to look beyond your own boundaries. The courage to address people and to invite them to take part, regardless of their background.
PAX brings people together who have the courage to stand for peace. We work together with people in conflict areas, visit politicians and combine efforts with committed citizens.
Peace belongs to everyone. Everyone who believes in peace can contribute to peace. PAX sets peace in motion. We call on committed citizens to take part. By posting a simple request on Facebook or by starting up a Peace Embassy. We firmly believe that all those little acts of courage will inevitably add up to peace.
