The Confucius Peace Prize Foundation was officially launched at Peking University on Sept. 21.

The Confucius Peace Prize is awarded to individuals or organizations that stop or meditate an ongoing or impending war or violent activity and those who make outstanding contributions to the reduction and destruction of weapons of mass destruction.

Every year, starting on the International Day of Peace, which falls on Sept. 21, any person or organization can recommend the nominees for the prize. And the result will be announced next year on Sept. 21.
