Friendship Force partnership with Global Green and Peace Boat US brings 3 groups together to promote world understanding
ATLANTA, Nov. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The leadership of Friendship Force International, Global Green and Peace Boat US have agreed to combine efforts to advance global awareness of the critical need for citizen engagement to promote environmental sustainability, peace, understanding, friendship and to address other urgent global causes.
"Imagine the power for positive change that such an alliance can apply to help find solutions for our planet's most serious challenges, most of which can be addressed and even solved by international cooperation created through friendship initiatives," said Jeremi Snook, President and CEO of Atlanta-based Friendship Force International.
Snook said the coordinated campaign will bring together people and groups from an array of nations and cultures to share diverse perspectives and seek unity of purpose on the pressing issues facing humankind that affect the future of the planet.
The collaboration with Global Green and Peace Boat US is an outcome of Friendship Force's stated strategy to forge partnerships with organizations aligned with its historic mission to promote understanding across the barriers that separate people.
The partners will be formalizing plans for mutual strategic cooperation in 2018, Snook said, with each organization leveraging its worldwide networks, public education initiatives, financial resources, and personnel to achieve common objectives.
"One of the most exciting and promising proposals is for members of Friendship Force and Global Green, along with other similarly-focused organizations, to travel around the world on Peace Boat to ignite a global citizen movement for our shared objectives of positive change," said Snook.
"Our common values that include helping people, places and a planet in need will be brought to life during these incredible journeys where travelers will make life-long friends while discovering new perspectives and collaborating to build peaceful and sustainable communities around the world," said William Bridge, Chief Operating Officer at Global Green.
Declared Emilie McGlone, Director of Peace Boat US: “We look forward to working with Friendship Force International and Global Green to create awareness and initiate action to inspire positive social change in the world as we travel to more than 100 countries annually on our Global Voyages with Peace Boat.”
