The Issue
To instill a culture of peace instead of a culture of war. The focus is on how war and violence exacerbates climate change and then connect peace activists with environmentalists to alert the world of the impact of war on climate change.

Main themes
Right to use environmental resources causes conflict Conflict exacerbates poverty and causes environmental damage. The two combine creating a cyclical effect leading to further conflict.
