You say you're against war, but what's the alternative? The AGSS.
What's that!? It's World BEYOND War's book A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (AGSS), which provides a blueprint for the strategies needed to demilitarize security, manage conflict nonviolently, and create a culture of peace. On this webinar, we'll be joined by Phill Gittins, PhD (WBW's Education Director) and Tony Jenkins, PhD (Education Director 2017-2019) to demystify the AGSS.
We'll explain the nuts and bolts of the alternative global security system: the frameworks, processes, tools, and institutions necessary for dismantling the war machine and replacing it with a peace system based on common security.
