David has been a leader in organizing the celebration of the International Day of Peace since 1984. While working at Stanford University, in 1985 he founded the ten year-long PTP Peace Within Organizations program and in 1995 co-founded the visionary project Peace Building Through Business which led to being a leading member of a five-year international think tank on the future role of business in the 21st Century.
