Peace and Cooperation was founded by Joaquín Antuña in 1982 and became a foundation in 1998. From the beginning, the actions of this Non Governmental Organization (NGO) have been centered on promoting a movement of non-violence and creativity and on building a world of solidarity.
Thus, doing away with the destruction that violence causes and bringing about a sustained effort to build a peaceful planet has always been the main priority. In order to pursue this, the focus has been disarmament, development, human rights, solidarity actions and global peace education.
Peace and Cooperation is associated with the Spanish Confederation of Foundations, the Spanish Coalition for Development, the alliance composed of NGO´s with the Special Status of the United Nations (CONGO), the International Peace Bureau (IPB), THE Millennium People's Assembly, UNITED (against racism), and the Securipax Forum of UNESCO.
Peace and Cooperation works in three main areas: development, education and human rights on an international level, reflecting the objectives of the Charter of the United Nations signed in San Francisco.
For 25 years, working under the motto of “Create and Survive”, Peace and Cooperation has tirelessly promoted universal education directed at the most vulnerable sectors, strengthened development of local and national agricultural economies, reinforced local production and local business networks and improved health and medical services (including efforts against malaria, AIDS and other diseases). It has similarly helped marginalized populations have access to decent housing, promoted gender equality and carried out food safety projects. Its renowned worldwide School Award initiative recognises students, teachers, and schools that work towards the ideals of peace, multicultural relations and diversity.
