In April 2012 the first issue of The Peace Journalist appeared. The developing field known as peace journalism is distinguished by editors and reporters making choices that improve the prospects for peace. These choices, including how to frame stories and carefully choosing which words are used, create an atmosphere conducive to peace and supportive of peace initiatives and peacemakers, without compromising the basic principles of good journalism. Peace journalism gives peacemakers a voice while making peace initiatives and non-violent solutions more visible and viable.
“The key question isn’t ‘What fosters creativity?’ But it is why in God’s name isn’t everyone creative? Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be now why do people create? But why do people not create or innovate? We have got to abandon that sense of amazement in the face of creativity, as if it were a miracle if anybody created anything.” Abraham Maslow
“If the study and practice of creativity can send us in a more positive direction, as individuals and as cultures, let us continue research to understand the positive qualities involved, more collaborative ways of creating and living, and how we can better value and honor each other and the healthy diversity in our world.”
