Peace Boat is Japan-based international non-profit, non-governmental organization striving to build a culture of peace around the world by connecting people across borders and creating opportunities for learning, activism and cooperation. We achieve this through programs in which people from around the world participate in voyages on board the Peace Boat. Peace Boat works in Special Consultative Status with UNESCO, and uses the ship as a platform to promote the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Peace Boat is also a steering group member of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.
This is an unpaid position. Peace Boat covers the cost of passage on the ship, meals onboard, visa fees, port fees, and accommodation in Tokyo during the orientation period (approximately one week prior to departure).
