The Movement for the Abolition of War


From time to time, MAW has run competitions, aiming to encourage young people to think about war and peace.

The title for the 2019 Essay competition, “Walking on the moon, still warring on earth” was inspired by the 50th Anniversary of the first moon landings. Humankind has solved incredibly difficult technical challenges like travelling to the moon – and back. Can we solve the problem of war?

In 2015 the Essay competition was “What Can Be Done to Abolish War?” and the Photo competition was “What Does Peace Mean to You?”
