Cultural Diversity and Sustainable Development for Peace, CD4Peace , is an independent, non-profit, international non-governmental organization, based in Geneva.

We aim to promote and protect Cultural Diversity Expressions and Sustainable Development, to enhance Human Rights, and to facilitate Conflict Resolutions and Peacebuilding around the world. We believe that without accepting and promoting cultural diversity, there would be no sustainable development; and conflict resolution could be happened when we recognize diversity in the process of sustainable development. Cultural diversity and sustainable development are two wings for our world to fly in the sky of Peace.
