The Prologue
The Zayed Peace Foundation is a non-profit organization created to fulfill and perpetuate the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder of the United Arab Emirates. A strong advocate for peace, unity and social stability, as well as protection and preservation of the environment, the great ruler believed that it is every man’s duty to secure a better world for the younger generation.

Most of us would probably agree that humanity is more than a collection of individual societies and cultures, and that there is a commonality that binds us together as human beings, as well as an essential nature that distinguishes us from other living creatures. We would also likely agree that we share certain basic human needs, including the need for safety and security for ourselves and our families, and the need to relate to others in meaningful and productive ways.

There is something else we share as human beings---three things that make us uniquely human: the ability to solve problems, the capacity to think creatively, and a quality of vision that allows us to see how our decisions today will affect all of us in the future. When used together, deliberately and persistently, we are presented with a tool that enables us to address and solve the most critical challenges we face in our world today---sustainable social and economic development, environmental preservation and protection and a just and lasting peace. When we resolve to embrace our common humanity and move together to create effective and equitable solutions to these challenges, change will follow.

After months of meticulous planning, Zayed Peace Foundation is preparing to undertake a major project in the United Arab Emirates, comprised of a number of feasible, sustainable and independent initiatives designed to address these pressing challenges.

Peace is impossible, a utopian dream.

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."

Muhammad Ali

Zayed Peace Island

“Dream no small Dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men”


Peace Island will be the Foundation’s centre of commitment. Fashioned in the shape of a heart to symbolize Sheikh Zayed's compassion and love for humanity, enormous resources will be allotted to this important undertaking, intended to affirm Zayed Peace Foundation’s commitment to address humanity’s common challenges, as well as to emulate Sheikh Zayed’s own commitment and generosity.

More importantly the island is a model of the future of an ecological sustainable society. Using everything from solar power, thermo energy, vacuum garbage & sewerage systems, electric trains, hydroponic farms and so much more. The Peace Island city will become a tourist attraction of the future. Taking visitors on a tour where they can see the potential of eco-friendly sustainable way of life.

Plans for Peace Island include a surrounding bay, created to provide a viable habitat for endangered fish of the gulf, as well as the cultivation of coral reefs, mangroves and lush native flora that will have drainage system which recycle the water usage and will provide a perfect environment for indigenous wildlife.

This island paradise will also have its own solar powered desalination plant. Electric powered cars and horse-drawn carriages will be the only permissible modes of transportation on Peace Island; underground parking will be provided for guests during their stay on the island and all carbons from such transportation will be recycled.

Peace Island will be home to :

  • The Jewel of the Emirates (The design has the latest technology of solar power)
  • Zayed Peace University
