The activities of the WPS are determined by an institutional culture based on dialogue and respect for all the parties involved in society, carefully melting and balancing the best of the various types of institutions and organizations, both in the public and private sectors, up to international organizations, academic institutions and civil society stakeholders from all over the world. The Mediterranean Foundation has founded its action believing that progress and PEACE can only develop by bringing together people of different social classes who possess the spirit, the influence and the ability to create a positive change in the processes of history and this assumption is at the basis of the World Peace Forum which - with the Maison de la Paix and the Museum of Peace - constitutes the main achievement of the Fondazione Mediterraneo.
