  • The Declaration of Christmas Peace

    December 21, 2016

    A Declaration of Christmas Peace is announced in several Finnish cities on Christmas Eve. The oldest and most popular event is held at noon at the Old Great Square of the former Finnish capital Turku, where the declaration has been read since the 1320s. The Declaration of Christmas Peace is a tradition which launches the Christmas celebrations and in a way marks the official start of Christmas. The exact wording used during the first few centuries of the tradition has been lost over time, but the main contents of the declaration remain the same: the declaration is read out loud to remind people that Christmas Peace has begun, to advise people to spend the festive period in harmony, to threaten offenders with harsh punishments, and to wish all a merry Christmas!

  • Publication on Johan Wateler, Peace Philanthropist and Founder of the Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize

    December 21, 2016

    At the height of the First World War, in 1916, the Dutch banker Johan Wateler wrote his last will in which he decided to allocate his fortune for a peace prize, the current Carnegie Wateler Peace Prize. This prestigious prize is awarded every year at the Peace Palace in The Hague. This publication offers the first biography of the relatively anonymous Dutchman who followed in the footsteps of great peace philanthropists as Alfred Nobel. Johan Watelers motives for establishing a peace prize are discussed by following his career as a pioneer of social credit banks under the patronage of Princess Sophie of Orange-Nassau. And by looking at his personal interests for theatre and poetry. The gift of November 16, 1916 remains an inspiring example of philanthropy as a ‘credit for peace’ in times of war and crisis.
