Architects of Peace Project
The Architects of Peace Web site is a gateway to exploring
the lives of a diverse group of men and women who have devoted
their lives to building peace. This site offers
- Portraits and brief biographies of more than 70 architects
of peace from around the world
- Essays by the Architects on working toward peace
- Resources for teachers and students, including curriculum
suggestions, suggested paper topics, and links for further
Collopy began this project with a magnificent series
of portraits of people who were working toward peace from
a diversity of viewpoints and backgrounds. The list includes
diplomats and poets, scientists and religious leaders.
Collopy, a fellow of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics,
has allowed the Center to extend the project to include
an annual Architects of Peace Award.
Each year, Santa Clara University will name new architects,
who will be added to the site.
The project also includes this site with curriculum resources
developed by John Farnsworth, a high school teacher, textbook
author and member of the Santa Clara University faculty.
Many of the materials on this site are available in the
book Architects of Peace. See
all of Michael Collopy's books on amazon.com.
