Financing the Future
Cartoon Movement Receives Grant

My Peace, Your Peace

After a very successful run last year, we’ve launched a new edition of our Peace & Justice project. Cartoon Movement is teaming up once again with the Hague project Peace and Justice, an initiative of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the city of The Hague to create a global debate about peace & justice that will involve editorial cartoonists and students from around the world.

The title of this year’s project is My Peace, Your Peace, to reflect how we all depend on each other to create a sustainable peace. We have to understand each other's perspective to build peace. 2015 also marks the 70th anniversary of two institutions that play (or should play) an important role in creating and maintaining peace worldwide: the United Nations and the International Court of Justice.

Students around the world contribute ideas for cartoons that reflect their perspective on peace, and our network of cartoonists turns these ideas into editorial cartoons. The best cartoons, and the ideas they are based on, will be selected for the exhibition at the end of the project. In September 2015, this exhibition will be on display in the iconic Peace Palace in The Hague. In 2016, the exhibition will travel to New York, to the headquarters of the United Nations.
