What do people around the world really desire?
Imagine a world of cities dedicated to expanding their local peace economy and encouraging a global culture of peace. Safety, prosperity, and quality of life are universal values that bring peace to our lives.
First and foremost in this global adventure is to reject violence and define ourselves as people of peace. International Cities of Peace is a formal Association of communities that by history, resolution, or proclamation are doing just this -- self-defining their community as an official City of Peace. This redefinition requires building a consensus network of business, government and community leaders who value safety, prosperity and quality of life.
PEACE IS BECOMING THE ZEITGEIST, OR SPIRIT OF OUR TIMES. Join the celebration! Get involved in the global transformation. Let the world know -- and more importantly, our children -- that our communities can become true Cities of Peace. Get involved today!

International Cities of Peace is an assocation of independent International Cities of Peace and is not responsible for the activities, actions, and opinions of individual members, partners, and advisors. With an understanding that no city in the world is 100% a city of peace, those that have self-designated as an International City of Peace are in the process of instituting and implementing peace building actions and commitments. International Cities of Peace offers the eight tenets of the UNESCO Culture of Peace as a guideline for progress. We thank the thousands of people, worldwide, who have contributed to creating this network dedicated to a more peaceful world.
