Local Peace Economy and its chief correspondent, Valerie Vande Panne, explore cultural, social and economic models that cultivate a sense of respect, and uplift all people. Every transaction we make in our daily lives ultimately contributes toward building a peace economy or a war economy, a world of compassion and well being, or a world of indifference and violence. The peace economy model encourages us to reinvest in our local communities. We cannot make these changes without the foundational building blocks of the very peace we are seeking.
