The HEARTWALKER PEACE PROJECT, an ongoing series of walks through cities around the world, is a volunteer organization creating and fostering a global community with peace and cooperation as its foundation.

The goal is to weave Peace, Love and Compassionate Power into our lives by connecting with others from different cultures, backgrounds and faiths in order to discuss and discover creative alternatives to war, violence and greed.

By walking through different cities and engaging with people on the street, we can reach others who share common values and beliefs and begin to weave an international community of Heartwalkers – citizens of the world who feel motivated to foster peace, generosity, education, human rights, civil equality and a healthy environment for everyone.

Heartwalking lets others who share similar views of the world know that they are not alone.

Our belief is that it is possible to effect enormous change on a grassroots level, and that our small efforts will have an ethical, economic and political impact on a national and international level. Change begins with one person taking action.

Heartwalker Peace Project started with one person. Where can we go from here? The world’s streets – and every beating heart – are our only limits…
