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.

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.
