The 9 Petalled Flower Of Peace: Petal 8 - Media

Published: 22.07.2015

We vow to produce and consume responsible media that shares the good news of the human story as well as the bad news; [1] we vow not to produce or consume media that discourages, disheartens, misinforms or de-energises people,[2] but to seek out news that inspires, enthuses and informs people, giving them hope in the possibility of a better world;[3] we vow to abstain from disseminating media stories based on lies, falsity, half-truths, we vow to tell stories from all sides;[4] we vow to report peace as much as war, good news of peace events and breakthroughs as much as wars and terrorism;[5] we recognize the power of the media to co-create reality, to use this power responsibly, we vow to develop a peace media that can encourage the transformation of the world into a place of peace and nonviolence.[6] We vow to abstain from the production or consumption of violent films, computer games and "entertainment" which give the message that violence and war are natural and normal and "good" and instead vow to help the film and media industry generate positive films and computer games that promote peaceful, creative and non-violent human relations.[7]
