About the Submission
Tony submitted World BEYOND War’s book, “A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (AGSS)” as an educational blueprint for ending all war through the development of a cooperative, nonviolent system of global governance. AGSS is complemented by the online study guide “Study War No More” that was co-developed by the Global Campaign for Peace Education. Study War No More provides guiding questions for discussion & action, and features videos of changemakers actively designing the new system. AGSS is utilized as a learning, planning and organizing tool by community groups, schools, universities, and policymakers around the world.
