Scilla Elworthy: A Business Plan for Peace

Feb 15, 2019-- A distinguished activist for peace for over 30 years, Dr. Scilla Elworthy has met with scientists and nuclear weapons policy makers from all five nuclear powers. She founded the Oxford Research Group, Peace Direct, and co-founded 'Rising Women, Rising World' and FemmeQ, and was nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize. She is interviewed here about her latest book, "The Business Plan for Peace: Building a World without War." In it, she points out that while 1,686 billion dollars is spent on militarisation every year, it would only cost two billion dollars to put into action methodologies that are known to work to prevent war and armed conflict worldwide.

Take ActionWe too can help on a local level, meeting with our communities to discuss peace projects. But first, as Elworthy cautions, we must work on our own emotions: "Perhaps a lot of people in public positions got where they got without doing any inner work," she says. "It's up to us to do that inner work so we are conscious of our own motivation and what's propelling us...I need to deal with my own feelings first."
