Virtual Event Virtual Event

In April 2024, World BEYOND War will be holding a weekly discussion each of four weeks of World BEYOND War’s award-winning book A Global Security System: An Alternative to War with World BEYOND War Education Director and lead author of the book Phill Gittins.

The book, in its Fifth Edition, is a synthesis of existing wisdom on what can be done instead of war, what a world beyond war could look like, how to go about getting to it, and what changes are involved in governments, in economics, in activism, in communications, in education, in our cultures, and in our daily lives. The book is available at no cost on the World BEYOND War website in PDF, ePub, Mobi, or audio, with both the PDF and a summary PDF version in many languages. The paperback is available for purchase but will be provided free to any registrant to this book club who wants it.

There’s an extra reason to register for this particular book club. Phill and a team of World BEYOND War staff and friends are working on plans for a major revision to the book in 2024, and we want your input, your feedback, your suggestions. What works, and what doesn’t? What’s missing, and what’s not needed? We’d like you to be our team of consultants and help guide us beyond our own perspectives on a book that is very familiar to us. Can you help?
