We believe that the vast majority of people want peace and that we can make this worldwide desire for peace visible today through a global peace vote. From our point of view, this would be a decisive step towards more peace.

Images and words have power. They can hurt but also heal. They shape our reality and determine our thoughts, feelings and actions.

There is much violence, hatred, destruction, division, oppression and exploitation in our world today. We all know these images through the media and social networks. These negative impressions create mistrust and lead to fear, anger and division. They weaken our courage, our strength and our will to give something back to the world we live in.

Vote For Peace wants to create as many positive images and impressions as possible through a global peace vote and show all people that there is reason to trust and hope.

Most people want peace and are willing to give to others. We would like to bring this power into the world. It can positively influence and permeate everything people think, feel and do - at any hour and in any place in this world.

By repeating it, we remind people of this election every year. In this way, we want to strengthen the effect of the vote. If the election were held only once, the process could be protracted and the effect might fizzle out.

The recurring vote also has a cleansing effect. So that as many people as possible can participate in the vote, we have deliberately dispensed with registration. Of course, this also makes it possible to click multiple times and manipulate the counter. By resetting the counter at the end of the year, these false votes will be deleted again. Note: Multiple clicking is allowed, however, if it results in multiple real votes.

We assume that this vote will eventually gain its legitimacy as a global peace vote through its notoriety and through many peace messages.

Yes! To enable as many people as possible to participate in the vote, we have deliberately dispensed with registration. We believe that simple participation is the decisive criterion. Because only if participation is easy can we reach many people. And only if we reach many people can we make a difference. By resetting the counter at the end of the year, any incorrect votes will be deleted again. Note: Multiple clicking is allowed, however, if it results in multiple real votes.

Vote For Peace is neutral. This is our most important principle. Only as an impartial organization we have a chance to be accepted by many people and only then this peace vote can become global. If we were to make concrete demands, our organization would no longer be impartial. Fronts would form and people with opposing opinions or interests would reject Vote For Peace.

Of course, the members of Vote For Peace have their own views, but in the context of this project we put them aside, because we want to create something unifying with Vote For Peace, and not something dividing. If a member of the project expresses a political, religious or ideological opinion, it is always a personal opinion.

Of course, people need to discuss problems and solutions and exchange opinions. But these conversations must take place in other places. Vote For Peace is a place where the sole purpose is to make visible the common desire for peace.

Yes, probably the vast majority of people want peace. But if no one speaks out, nothing can change. A silent majority cannot be heard. Only a visible majority has influence.

The most important thing is that no one is pressured into voting. Participation must be absolutely voluntary. Only when a person casts his or her vote of his or her own free will can that vote have a positive effect.

Many people need time to get to know the project and the idea and to gain confidence. Give them the time and the opportunity to inform themselves.

In matters of climate change, species protection and all other global problems, peace is of central importance, because peace is the basis for cooperation and only together can we master the great tasks of our time.
