The Declaration on a Culture of Peace as adopted by consensus on 13 September 1999 following the UNGA Resolution A/RES/53/243, is the main cornerstone of the Centre for Peace, Security and Armed Violence Prevention. The general assembly have recognised that the end of the cold war had widened possibilities for strengthening a culture of peace, this should be the basis for any organisation seeking to prevent armed violence globally.
For the fact, on the 12 of May 2015 CPS-AVIP was represented by Stephen Pashley at the briefing meeting on the Basingstoke Peace Garden Project. CPS - AVIP was invited to join the Advisory Group to create "A relaxing space for contemplation which recognises the contribution made by the Basingstoke local community in conflicts, past and represents with our hopes for lasting peace and reconciliation" Aiming for completion in Sept 2018 the project Advisory Group and CPS-AVIP hopes to bring all those in Basingstoke together and foster better engagement in peace activities and to provide a garden for all to enjoy.
