How do we restore trust and bridge divides in a world of increasing uncertainty?
The Man Who Built Peace is a new documentary which shows how Frank Buchman’s message inspired a worldwide movement of changemakers in conflict resolution, peacebuilding and social cohesion, which is profoundly relevant today.
Many of the world’s problems – and their solutions – are rooted in human nature. Greed and indifference lead to injustice, poverty, conflict and environmental destruction. Yet it is also in human nature to be caring, courageous and creative.
The advent of an uncertain social and political landscape in Europe, which we see returning today, creates a need for Buchman’s unique approach in peacebuilding. Join us at the London premiere of The Man Who Built Peace and learn about the transformative power within every one of us.
Frank Buchman was a thinker and leader whose trust-building and peace efforts influenced the 20th century. He advocated transforming society through changes in human motives and behaviour, starting with himself. By inspiring honesty, cooperation and friendship amongst people and nations he helped to bring individuals, communities, industry and countries together in order to overcome the barriers that prevented them moving forward.
This celebrated and award-winning film documents Buchman’s peacemaking approach and features powerful stories of reconciliation, apology, and forgiveness that inspires and challenges people to reflect on what they can and should do. It reminds us that we can all be the change we want to see in the world.
The key note address will be delivered by Fatima Zaman, a young leader for the Kofi Annan Foundation Extremely Together Foundation.
Doors open at 6.30, with the event starting at 7.00.
