A project I am currently involved with is the ISS for the Nobel Peace Prize initiative. The International Space Station, or ISS is the largest peace-time endeavour in human history and a model for international cooperation. We aim to promote the ISS as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize and hopefully one day win the prestigious award.
15 nations formed the ISS Partnership with: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. These nations worked together despite cultural and geographical differences to build, finance and launched the orbiting science laboratory and home.
As the largest structure built by humans in space, it serves as a permanent outpost within the vacuum of space. Humans have lived peacefully in space everyday since the year 2000! Such a magnificent testament to peace and cooperation both on Earth and in space is one that is worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize and it is the goal of the ISS for Nobel Peace Prize initiative to secure global recognition of this technological feat that has brought scientific and economic benefits to all partners as well as inspiring people across the globe to dream higher.
