Sector 5: Peacebuilding & Relations

The Peacebuilding & Relations Sector focuses on establishing a global Culture of Peace by teaching principles of social justice and modeling compassion for all. The Virginia HUB affirmatively supports the beauty of racial diversity, the preservation of indigenous cultures, the need for universal gender equality, and the full acceptance of sexual orientation. This Sector also provides training in alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as Spiral Dynamics, Integral Theory, Sociocracy, and Polarity Theory. As an additional Peacebuilding resource, our good friends at The Shift Network have provided us with a link to their World Peace Library. The “heart” of the Peace Pentagon is dedicated to this critical Sector.
