Zones of Peace International Foundation
The ZOPIF is a non-profit organization with the vision of an evolving global culture of peace. The mission is to contribute to the evolution of the global culture of peace through fostering and assisting in the establishment of sites with special significance as Zones of Peace (ZOP) in active partnership with citizens, religious/spiritual and secular leaders, and their governments. A Zone of Peace is a site with sacred, religious, historic, educational, cultural, geographical and/or environmental importance, protected and preserved by its own community and officially recognized by a governmental authority. It is not merely a "Demilitarized Zone", but a sanctuary that operates within ethical principles of non-violence, free from weapons, acts of violence, injustice and environmental degradation.
