This collaboration began with PeaceTones®, an initiative of IBO, that recognizes that musicians play a powerful role in local community building, which in turn can contribute to peace building. Global Futurist Initiative’s work is synergistic with PeaceTones® and other IBO-led projects through the CAST 4ward program that recognizes artistic expression playing a powerful role in shaping attitudes and awareness about environmental, social and governance issues, including, but not limited to, the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as our Assembloids program and SDG 18 Youth Equity campaign.
