TEDTalk Tuesday: Jody Williams

Nobel Laureate Jody Williams describes her realistic vision for world peace built based on human security realized by the actions of ordinary people.

“In my view, what we need today is people getting up and taking action to reclaim the meaning of peace. It's not a dirty word. It's hard work every single day. And if each of us who cares about the different things we care about got up off our butts and volunteered as much time as we could, we would change this world, we would save this world. And we can't wait for the other guy. We have to do it ourselves.”

Jody Williams, who received the Nobel Peace Prize for founding and working on the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, speaks on the realistic vision for world peace based on reframing the traditional understanding on peace through the concept of human security while featuring examples of real women who are fighting for peace in their societies.
