Peace Culture Village (PCV) is a nonprofit, international eco-village and experiential peace training camp located in the mountains of Hiroshima Prefecture. On campus, we cultivate peace and nonviolence through sustainable living and farming. Out in the world, we make Hiroshima’s peace culture accessible through Peace Camps and Hiroshima Adventures that strengthen peace in ourselves and our community while contributing to universal health and wellbeing.
The devastating consequences of war are visible around the world, but even in Hiroshima, there is little discussion of how human hearts, minds, conversations, and socio-economic and political systems have to change if we hope to create a culture of peace. PCV is working to fill this gap. Because we believe that peace among humans and peace with nature are equal requirements, our training focuses on imparting conflict resolution and environmentally sustainable living skills.
