We are planning many projects designed to educate people and government officials about the full spectrum of the costs of war on every level. We will use these projects to promote peace and peacebuilding over militarism.
One project is to produce films on the human, societal and financial costs of the post-9.11 wars. The films will also enlighten people about effective conflict prevention and conflict resolution that avoids war. The films will be comprehensive, objective and scholarly. They will be offered as a public service, free to all audiences.
