Partners in Peace
To achieve the goals of peace with justice the building of partnerships is crucial. Regular communication and consultation with our Partners affects the Sydney Peace Foundation’s choice of priorities in each year. In this respect the Foundation acknowledges the invaluable association with, and support from, the City of Sydney and Singapore Airlines; and we look forward to engaging with other key partners in the near future.
As beautiful as it is dynamic, the City of Sydney is the commercial, financial and cultural heart of Australia and an active player in the world economy. Sydney as one of the world’s most livable cities and leading business and leisure destinations.Both visitors and Sydneysiders benefit from the reassurance that Sydney flourishes in a climate of ‘peace’.
In 2012 the Sydney Peace Foundation welcomed Singapore Airlines as our newest Partner in Peace. The Sydney Peace Prize Recipient for 2012, Senator Sekai Holland and her husband, will fly from South Africa to Sydney in the luxury of Singapore Airlines world-renowned business class experience.
Singapore Airlines has come a long way since their founding in 1972, evolving from a regional airline to one of the most respected travel brands around the world. Singapore Airlines fly one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world to destinations spanning a network spread over six continents. The Singapore Girl is an internationally-recognisable icon for the high standards of care and service that customers expect of travelling with Singapore Airlines.
The Sydney Peace Foundation is a privately endowed Foundation established in 1998 within the University of Sydney.
The University of Sydney was founded in 1850, and has grown to have over 3,000 academic staff, over 50,000 students from over 130 countries, and over 270,000 alumni, including prime ministers, Nobel laureates, Oscar winners, business leaders, medical pioneers, artists, and intellectual activists. Their cutting-edge research reaches across disciplinary barriers to find unique solutions to improve and transform our lives. The Foundation is grateful for a number of in-kind services as well as the moral support that the University provides.
