Peace Boat

Peace Boat is an international NGO working to promote peace and sustainability

Established in 1983, Peace Boat is an international NGO which holds Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN). It promotes peace, human rights, sustainable development and respect for the environment.

Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a passenger ship that travels the world. Guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Peace Boat’s activities onboard and in port empower participants, strengthen local capacity for sustainability, and build people-to-people cooperation beyond borders. The voyages blend sustainable tourism, lifelong learning and friendship activities with educational programmes, cooperative projects and advocacy funded by voyage participation fees.

Peace Boat’s headquarters are in Tokyo. It has five other offices across Japan, and a sister organization -Peace Boat US- based in New York.
