Each year we organize three Global Voyages and two shorter Asian regional voyages. Over 1,000 participants visit as many as 20 different countries on our three-month Global Voyages. Both onboard and in-port, our programmes use travel and education to explore the main aspects of Peace Boat’s activities – peace, human rights, and sustainability.



Peace Boat carries out various projects and campaigns to promote peace, human rights and sustainability. Working with partner organizations and individuals in Japan, Northeast Asia and around the world, Peace Boat uses local grassroots actions, international conferences, global networking and media, as well as its ship, to raise awareness and make a positive impact on socio-political, economic and environmental issues.
