For many, 2017 has been a difficult year. From natural disasters to rising inequalities, human rights abuses to escalating conflicts, it can sometimes feel like the challenges we face as a global community are insurmountable.

No challenge, however, is withoutsolutions. We know that there are steps—large and small—that we can all take to bring serenity into our lives and into the world.

As we look ahead to the New Year, let’s use the power of stories to create the change we want to see. We can start by sharing our visions for 2018 and voicing our commitments to making those visions a reality.

From a simple resolution to approacheach interaction through a lens of compassion, to a bold plan to launch a new initiative, tell us your plans—and the moments or events that inspired them—so thatcollectively we can chart a path to peace.
