Without the tremendous support of Sir Peter Ustinov, we would not have got on our feet so quickly. The fact that the idea of Equilibrism was able to establish itself so successfully in the minds of many people is mainly thanks to him. You can read here how the cooperation with this extraordinary person, who saw himself as a bridge builder to a better world, came about.
The first meeting between Sir Peter Ustinov and Eric Bihl, Chairman of Equilibrismus e.V., took place in October 1998 during the Frankfurt Book Fair. This had been made possible by WFM Germany (World Federalist Movement Germany), the German offshoot of the World Federalists, of which Sir Peter had been chairman since 1990. Equilibrism had already worked closely with the WFM at that time. Sir Peter showed himself to be uncomplicated, warm-hearted and interested at this meeting. And since these qualities also apply to Eric Bihl, who could have been his son, the chemistry between the two was right from the start. The second time they met was in May 1999 in The Hague, at The Hague Appeal for Peace Conference.
