Pro-peace Initiatives From Sulkava, Finland and Brooklyn, New York to Collaborate
Groups plan to create and use new synergy to promote world peace
By: I Declare World Peace
New York Photographer Rita Gelber, president and co-founder of the I Declare World Peace project, was animated about the collaboration:
Reached at her home by telephone in Sulkava, Finland, Hanna Partanen, the co-founder, and executive director of Peace Invaders, who, along with her sister Susanna Partanen and colleague Ella-Roosa Tenhunen, conceived of Peace Invaders in 2016, was equally enthusiastic. "Our cross-promotional collaboration with I Declare World Peace, coming just as Peace Invaders is developing its approach - one that uses a broad variety of means to unite technologists, artists, conflict transformation specialists and scholars in an effort to innovate new peace-building tools and to advance the growth of a viable 'peacetech' industry worldwide – is perfectly timed. Our collaboration will magnify the pro-peace synergies of our respective efforts. Peace Invaders shares the I Declare World Peace project's view that peace is both possible and achievable."
Partanen and Gelber each acknowledged that their collaboration is in its infancy. While each project will preserve its own individual approach to "raising global peace consciousness"
Partanen echoed Gelber's sentiments. "This collaboration will enable each of us to maximize the all-important message of peace, as well as to advance concrete steps toward peace, which of course is the goal of our respective initiatives."
