Vision and Mission

The Seacoast Peace Academy envisions a sustainable culture of peaceful relationships.

Our mission is to develop and encourage communities of learning that foster and enhance a sustainable culture of peaceful relationships in the Greater Seacoast Region of New Hampshire and Maine.

The Seacoast Peace Academy is a non-partisan, principle-based community of learning that believes that peace is the wholeness created by right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures and the earth. These relationships are inclusive, non-violent, respectful and enduring. They are expressed as the Five Interrelated and Interdependent Spheres of Peace which include the personal, the social, the political, the institutional and the ecological.

We are a inspired by theNational Peace Academy.
